C Suite? Directors? Looking to Advance? The Smart Way to Get Discovered | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com

EP 1472 Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses a smart technique for being discovered.

Summary

As you have already discovered, if you follow the path that you used while you are a junior employee (applying to job ads), you will be wasting your time. What you want to be doing is getting yourself found in discovered by organizations. Yes, you can do that with a great LinkedIn profile , but that is only a small piece of what you should be doing. You should also be looking at putting yourself out publicly so the people discover you, your knowledge, your competence and have a positive impression of you so that they want to reach out to you about jobs and opportunities.

I'm in the process of researching the book now. I'm getting contacted by publicists for people, not just simply try to get their author on my podcast but as a result of researching a book for how people can make a certain level professionally, but publicists are reaching out to me in order to get their executive in front of me as part of the book.

For you who may be aspiring or you who is already in the role, a publicist can play a big part in your career progression. Don't neglect publicity with think that is for someone else because it then will be for someone else and they will get the job. They'll get the contact. They will hear about the opportunity that you don't.

Again, see if you can research publicists. I'm not to recommend any because I don't want you to think of getting a commission for recommending a particular publicist. I want to recommend the concept to you. Research them on your own. Start with Google. Ask friends or family. Start looking for people who can advance your career by getting you into media, getting you into conferences, getting you in front of influential writers who will be happy to quote you and happy to put you out there as part of their articles.
