@Marquese Gates landed a new job as a staffing specialist to help ppl find jobs. It’s an amazing opportunity to CONNECT with him and COMPLETE your profile so your new contact gets a better chance of your skills and interests to recommend any good match. There are a couple ways to initiate a professional connections online:

  • Introduce yourself in a sentence or two about your experiences and professional goals
  • Ask SPECIFIC questions about particular job requirements or application steps
  • Ask about other career advice such as company recommendations or suggestions for additional contacts to build

You can do these on Jobcase through COMMENTING and MESSAGING! Always remember to FOLLOW UP and THANK YOU as the professional courtesy for both online and in person networking.

What are your tricks to do networking in real life vs. online?

I also use the ppl search on Jobcase and LinkedIn to look up anyone who work for the company I want to apply to. It's a great tip to dig more info about specific employers and expand your network.

I think the vetting process is still very important when making a professional connection online. Check their profiles carefully and see if it matches across all online searches. It seems easy but always be careful!

It's not easy to make that first step but it's definitely worth it. I find ppl much more open to online and LEGITIMATE connection nowadays under the pandemics. It actually save a lot more time around scheduling to meet up for coffee or showing up at an event. But it's a great and EFFICIENT way to expand your network and boost your job search.
