Indy Job Hunting from IndySpectator


Robby

A great new post from our friends at IndySpectator covers the ins and outs of job hunting in Indianapolis. The full article is online, but here’s one example tip from writer Jenni Edwards:

Tell Your Friends. Now, if you are completely unemployed or just part-timing, you can tell the world you’re looking for a full-time gig, and I encourage you to do so. Obviously, if you are employed, it’s probably smart to only plant the seed with a handful of close friends. In either situation, make sure to be specific. Too often, I hear “I’m looking for a job (or new job).” Instead, it should be “I am looking for a new job; I’m really interested in getting into a more client-facing role and am open to both sales and account management.” While you’re at it, throw in a “I’ve been really interested in working at COMPANY ABC – do you know anyone there?”

She also has some fantastic advice about online networking:

Stalk On Twitter. If you aren’t on Twitter, you’re missing out on some easy networking and ice breakers. It’s normal to interact with strangers (or distant acquaintances) on Twitter, and you can get access to people that are otherwise impossible to track down/connect with in-town. It’s also a great tool to learn about someone’s interests and opinions before an in-person meeting.

Here at Indy At Work, we’ve got tons of resources on our website for Indianapolis jobseekers, including the perhaps the most comprehensive list of Indianapolis networking groups anywhere!
