Although, social media seems to have taken over as a top tool in recruiters toolbox, making the in person networking and “live connections” may just give you the edge needed to land your next job.
Have you engaged with Executives and Managers at conferences and events to learn more about their company? Are you building in-person relationships (when possible) with recruiters for today and tomorrow? (Local Meet-ups, SHRM chapters, business journal meetings are all great places to start.) If not, it may be time to stop and understand what you need to do or change to ensure you are attracting people’s interest and building solid relationships. While technology and social media remain an important tool for candidates to use, don’t forget the impact a handshake can have!
