Social Networking Pt II
Here it is as promised! Just a few pointers of my own:
– The key to social networking, as with real-life networking (although the two are becoming less and less clearly distinguishable…) is to operate at your level. There is no point trying to get in touch with the CEO of a company you want to work for. Find someone entry-level and see what THEY can suggest. Hey, if they take a liking to you (for whatever reason!) they may find it in their hearts to exercise a little nepotism of their own…
– Don’t be afraid to ask in the first place!
– Make sure you follow up any leads with a genuine e-mail/phone call and a CV so they know you mean business.
– Get a LinkedIn Account. This is going to be very, very useful in the future when it hits a few more users. It will.
