Job Board Detox Tip #9: Attend a Networking Event for Non-Job Seekers
Today’s job board detox tip: Attend a networking event for non-job seekers. Yes, your challenge today is to attend a networking event that is NOT targeted to job seekers. Why? Because it will help you to meet the target audience you need to reach - employed individuals. One could be your next manager or a colleague. Getting in front of others to talk about your industry and have the opportunity to give your value statement is critical. Places you can look for groups are:
  • MeetUp
  • Eventbrite
  • LinkedIn Events
  • BusinessJournal for your area
  • Yelp
  • When.com
  • Associations you are a member of
  • Alumni Groups
Get going, find a group, and put the next meeting on your calendar and most importantly... GO to the event. That can be my downfall too. I understand. Even Miss Extrovert over here can be challenged with attending an event. I have all the best intentions and then when it comes to actually committing to the event, something stops us right? Don’t let it. Push through those feelings and get out. You will be glad you did.
