Network your way into the job you wantAbridged: JamesWantsToKnowYou

LOS ANGELES, CA -- Today's job market has redefined how companies recruit, requiring top candidates to redefine how they get noticed. As a candidate, it's important to always be mindful of the brand you're displaying and polish that brand regularly in a way that brings positive attention to the skills and attributes you bring to the table.

There's got to be something to this thing called NETWORKING. I've often found candidates with the skills who didn't land the job. It's clear, that just having the right skills doesn't cut it in today's marketplace. Develop a relationship with the hiring manager or recruiter. You should regularly follow-up to make them aware of your continued interest. Always make sure to highlight the area about which you're passionate.

Your objective is to always be seen as a top candidate who just hasn't found the right role. The second step is to connect with the leaders in your industry by locating the top organizations that cater them. Your objective is to be in the places they are without being seen as a stalker. The more you get involved: The more likely you'll increase your network; The more likely you'll run into the hiring managers that said no; The more likely you'll receive a call when the next opportunity presents itself.
