Make the Most of Personal Recommendations
We all know how valuable personal recommendations can be to get attention from employers. Most of your competitors will focus on recommendations to hiring managers and leave the details to the recommenders. But there are several more ways to use recommendations and ensure your message comes through loud and clear to every key individual.
How to connect AND leave a highly positive, very memorable impression with key people at employers, or those who are known and trusted by them?
That’s the topic of our September 5 WIND South program. Fred Nothnagel will present it and, as usual, lead a discussion. The program will go far beyond simply getting people to recommend you to hiring managers.
You will come away knowing how to
– Identify key players in your targeted companies and others who likely know them
– Contact those whose recommendations would benefit you
– Use your EQ and the 3C principals of communication to maximize your chances of obtaining a great recommendation
– Multiply the benefits via social media
– Turn recommenders into Advocates or Allies
