Make it easy for people to get in touch with you about jobs

Make it easy for people to get in touch with you. 

How easy is it for people not currently in your network to get in touch with you?

Social Network concept in 3d

How can recruiters and hiring managers get in touch with you? You might want to have an email address just for your job search.  I recommend a gmail account.

It is your “loose connections” or your distant ones that will be most likely to have your next job for you.  Don’t network with recruiters – we will find you if we have a job you seem to fit, but do network with people at the companies you want to work in.  Maintain your connections, say “Happy Birthday” or Congratulations on work anniversary, promotion or new job!  And keep adding to the network.  Your limit is 30,000!

Here is what you have to do on LinkedIn to allow recruiters and hiring managers to email you directly.

Go to your picture in the upper right hand corner (in the black bar)

Hover and click on Settings and Privacy

Go to the Privacy Tab

Click on “Who can see your email address”

And change it to Everyone or at least 1st and 2nd-degree connections 

If you don’t want the emails from anyone, change it to Only you

But why do that?  What are you on LinkedIn for? 

 

Who can see connie@hamptonexecutivesearch.com on your profile?

  • Only you
  • 1st-degree connections
  • 1st and 2nd-degree connections
  • Everyone on LinkedIn

You can control what email address is your primary in your email settings and learn more about how your email address is visible to other members on LinkedIn.
