Identify Relevant Contacts Through Networking For Interview Prep

Identify Relevant Contacts Through Networking For Interview Prep

By Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter

From LinkedIn:  The first step is to identify who in your network can help you with your interview preparation. You may have connections who work or have worked at the company, who have a similar role or background, or who have expertise in the field or sector. You can also reach out to your mentors, coaches, or peers who can offer general advice or guidance. You can use platforms like LinkedIn, alumni directories, or professional associations to find and connect with relevant contacts.

How Proactive Networking Will Prepare You For The Inevitable

I added: You don’t have a lot of time to prepare for interviews because companies interpret delays as a lack of interest AND in this job market, they have other people who are more available to choose from. You have to hustle to get to your contacts and use all of your data tools to prepare for an interview. Act immediately to schedule short conversations and learn interview frameworks like The Ultimate Job Interview Framework to give yourself a baseline for delivering answers and being interviewed. Act swiftly or risk losing the opportunity.
