LinkedIn + IT Professionals = A Match Made In Heaven

June 19, 2016

With the development of the social networking site LinkedIn, the job market is more open than ever if you’re searching for a career as an IT professional. LinkedIn makes it unbelievably easy to find open jobs by offering a search engine that allows you to search for the exact type of IT job you’re looking for. If you know how to find hiring managers on LinkedIn, you’re one step closer to finding the IT job of your dreams. However, you won’t have to look too hard, because in 2012, 93% of the recruiters on LinkedIn were looking for professionals, too.

First Degree Connection

A first degree connection on LinkedIn is someone that is directly connected to you. These first-degree connections might be friends, acquaintances, or people you have met online using message boards or groups. By linking with people who you know to be hiring managers, you have a better chance of finding a job–and quicker. LinkedIn allows you to message your first degree connections, which makes it easier for you to get the word out that you’re searching for a job.

Second Degree Connection

A second-degree connection is a connection of someone who you are connected to. If you have put out the word to your first degree connections, oftentimes they are able to set up an introduction for you to someone they are connected to–someone who may be looking for a new employee with your skill set. Taking advantage of your second-degree connections is a great way to gain access to open positions.

Group Discussions

Groups are a great feature of LinkedIn. There are many different types of groups you can join, and you’re bound to find one that appeals to your area of expertise. By engaging yourself in group discussions, you may find job opportunities that you wouldn’t have come across otherwise. Spend some time with your groups. Check your profile and make sure that it is completed, and then join in with group conversations. Groups are a great way to build your reputation and connect with people who might be able to help you in your job search.

The Comrise Sales and Recruiting team uses LinkedIn every day to connect with hiring managers and job candidates like yourself. Connect with us today to find out how we can use our combined connections to help you leverage your next IT or Big Data job.
