@Marquese Gates landed a new job as a staffing specialist to help ppl find jobs. It’s an amazing opportunity to CONNECT with him and COMPLETE your profile so your new contact gets a better chance of your skills and interests to recommend any good match. There are a couple ways to initiate a professional connections online:

  • Introduce yourself in a sentence or two about your experiences and professional goals
  • Ask SPECIFIC questions about particular job requirements or application steps
  • Ask about other career advice such as company recommendations or suggestions for additional contacts to build

You can do these on Jobcase through COMMENTING and MESSAGING! Always remember to FOLLOW UP and THANK YOU as the professional courtesy for both online and in person networking.

What are your tricks to do networking in real life vs. online?

Now more than ever as we head back into the world this is THE best time to reach out to friends, acquaintances, old co-workers, managers and those you know!

Why?

Well because according to CNBC, 80% of jobs are filled through personal and professional connections!!

As it turns out you never know who can help you land that next opportunity. Start by reaching out with a simple hello, no agenda needed and see where the conversation takes you.

Learn more about how to revive those old connections!

If you find yourself scrolling through the Jobcase community and you suddenly see someone that is REALLY inspiring or interesting, go ahead and click on their name!

This will take you directly to their profile so you can read more about them. If you still like what you see feel free to click the blue “Connect” button under their name.

Just know that connecting is a two-way street so they must accept your invitation to connect.

You can check in to see who has already connected with you as well as those who wish to connect in the connections section of your profile.

Did you know that 85% of jobs come from your network - not from submitting an application?

Who should you connect with? Start with this short list:

  • Who do you like talking to
  • Role model you have
  • Someone who always has great advice
  • Someone you want to be closer to
  • Someone who is doing a great job at work or in their profession

Grow your network and connect today!

You're probable already doing this subconsciously. Connecting with people you know, worked with, and in your social media network is the best way to secure good job opportunities.

How may people in your network know you are looking for a job right now? Have you taken the time this week to connect for job lead or shared your resume?

I've been at Jobcase Community Specialist for a little over 2 years now. I landed this job via a new acquaintance I met through a friend of a friend and within 2 weeks found a career opportunity I've been able to maintain for all this time.

Turns out, this company was right in my neighborhood and I had absolutely no idea. Sometimes, solutions are allot closer than you think but only present themselves when you make yourself more available to receive them.

  • Use our LetsConnect tool to add your contacts, share your profile, and empower your network to support you along your new job search journey Today!

Also, upload your resume and connect with me. I'm happy to share new job leads and hiring opportunities in your area that match your goals.

If you've recently taken the time to revise your #resume and online Jobcase profile to have them looking spruced up and stunning - great work!

However, if you are finding that they don't portray you as a direct match for a particular role you are eyeing, don't be hesitant about modifying wording, swapping around keywords, and changing up your bullet points! Having multiple versions of your resume is a great thing to do.

Remember, it's not a tattoo - there is no such thing as a "permanent" resume or online profile. Think of them as living, breathing documents throughout the entirety of your job search and career life!

Tell potential employers what you want by updating your bio on your Jobcase profile.

Your bio should include 2 things:
• The work or types of jobs you want
• Why employers will want to hire you

Give your job search a boost with a great bio!
