Job search tales: building relationships with employers

In this episode of “Tales from the job search trenches”, Michael Surkan describes how to use LinkedIn to get in touch with the people you want to know at the firms you hope to work for, and offers strategies to build relationships with them. This is far more effective than just trusting your resume to an on-line job application form.

If you like this podcast you can check out Michael’s article outlining his own job search strategy to get more tips. Also, you can listen to my series of my "Anatomy of a job search" podcasts where I interview fellow-job seekers about their search strategies and brainstorm ways to improve their effectiveness.

NOTE: Please contact Michael if you are interested in being a guest on “Anatomy of a job search” podcasts. Michael would like to discuss your job search strategy, and brainstorm ways to improve it with you. Check out Michael’s LinkedIn profile for contact information.
