TIP #2 – Be Exciting Nobody wants to promote someone they can’t get excited about. So, give your network the information they need to be inspired to refer you. When they have the right information, they are more likely to take that next step and share it with hiring managers. One of our CAREEREALISM Club members recently applied this technique and shared her results on our network’s Success Wall. Here’s what she said:
“I would like to share with you I’ve applied the second principle on networking we discussed about yesterday which is: Getting people excited about referring you. I have a friend who was hesitating to refer me to his boss because the boss wanted somebody that had 1 or 2 years of experience in programming in a certain language I know (theory) but don’t have a practical experience with it. So, I outlined to my friend my personal enthusiasm and excitement about the job even though I did not have experience.
Also while I did this, I made a parallel with him when he was a beginner and how he struggled hard to find the job that he is now and that somebody did give him a chance once. So, he was moved and he sent my mail to his boss supporting my candidacy. He even called me yesterday to tell me my e-mail moved him and he hopes I’ll have an interview and if they call me, he will definitely help me prepare for the interview.”I promise, if you really take the time to apply these two simple tips, you’ll definitely be more referable.
