Steps

Identify Contacts on LinkedIn

Use LinkedIn Search: Find decision-makers and employees working at your target companies.

Target Profiles: Look for two decision-makers (e.g., managers, directors) and one employee in a relevant role.

Initial Outreach

Add Note: Send a personalized connection request mentioning your interest in their company and role.

Step 2 Message: Once connected, follow up with a message thanking them and requesting an informational interview.

Request Informational Interview

  • Prepare Questions: Research the company and prepare specific questions about hidden job opportunities, required skills, and the internal hiring process.
  • Conduct Interview: Listen actively, take notes, and express gratitude for their time and insights.

Leverage for Formal Interview

  • Apply Insights: Use the gathered information to tailor your resume, cover letter, and application strategy.

Why does this work?

Access to Unadvertised Roles

By connecting with decision-makers and current employees, you can learn about job openings that are not publicly advertised. These hidden opportunities often have less competition, increasing your chances of securing a position.

Insider Information

Engaging with employees and decision-makers gives you insider knowledge about the company's internal hiring practices and the specific skills they value. This information allows you to tailor your application more effectively and stand out as a well-informed candidate.

Building Relationships

Networking with key individuals within your target companies helps you build valuable relationships. These connections can provide ongoing support, referrals, and recommendations, significantly boosting your chances of being considered for hidden job opportunities.
