What kind of networking are you open to?
How do you introduce yourself to people you meet in business?
I’m a Senior Technical Recruiter. I specialize in high level IT and Non IT staffing. I truly enjoy learning about technology, helping companies grow by finding them outstanding talent, and helping candidates by finding them right opportunities. I feel that my passion of technology and helping people and companies is what brings satisfaction to me and a formula to be successful Recruiter. I use a variety of resources to locate quality candidates including but not limited to direct sourcing, networking, online networking, community sites, internet searches, blogs, internal database searches, and job board searches and postings.
What recruiting tools can you not live without?
job boards, Boolean searches, JigSaw, ZoomInfo, LinkedIn, jobster and Spoke.
Over the past year I have been experimenting how best to facilitate members being able to connect with each other. Some want to connect with everyone and some are looking for a few meaningful connections.
1-2 times per week I send a group introduction message with 10-15 new members and reintroducing others.
What this means for you is simple, do you wish to be introduced to the group?
You have 4 options from which to choose:
(A) “Open Networker” with name, email address, and LinkedIn URL as you want to connect with anyone and everyone.
(B) “General Introduction” with name and LinkedIn URL as you are specific about who you want to connect with.
(C) “Lurker” no announcement will be made as you want to be on the sidelines connecting with people as you wish.
(D) “Super Open Networker” which is (A) plus having your contact information on the group page.
A caution on the “Open Networker”, you may be inundated with invitations to connect. For some this is exactly what they are hoping for and others this could be a pain.
I do ask, if you receive invitations from members you do not want to connect with that you “Archive” the message versus “I don’t know” so the sender is not penalized by LinkedIn although how you handle this is up to you.
Again your options are (A), (B), (C), (D).
Please include your LinkedIn URL and email address you prefer to receive invitations and send to email@example.com
