  • 2. NEWSLETTER FIRST QUARTER 2009 2009 New Year`s Resolution: Leveraging Your Network to Achieve Your Career Goals Just after the New Year is a great time to reach out to folks who can help with your job search or career transition. Not only is it timely for you, but those folks who are in position to help you (friends of friends, professional contacts you made in the fall, alums of your school, etc.) are also doing the same thing with their own networks so they are in the mindset of seeking/giving advice and will be excited to help - if you make it easy for them. Here are three steps to do just that. Step 1: Develop a short list of folks who can potentially help. Identify 1-2 folks in each of the following categories: • Peers – friends, relatives, current/former schoolmates who are pursuing similar tracks and ideally are a little ahead of you • Job/recruiting contacts – folks you have met through your job search activities to date who work at organizations that you are pursuing • Experienced professionals – friends of friends/family, alumni of your schools, former bosses who have John Rice connections, opportunities and wisdom Founder & CEO of MLT Step 2: Make smart requests that are easy for them to respond with “yes”. Smart requests are ones that are in your contact’s “sweet spot” in terms of their ability to help you and are consistent with how well they know you. • For your peers (ideally who know you well and have been through a similar recruiting process recently): Share the opportunities you are pursuing, send them your resume and a sample cover email for a target firm (or if you are already in the interviewing process, send them 3-4 bullet points that best describe how you will communicate your key selling points in an upcoming interview), and ask them for feedback. “Would you give me an interview (or recommend I go to the next round of interviews) based on this?” • For Experienced Professionals: Share the types of jobs you are pursuing along with your resume as context and ask them the following question: “Based on my background and what I have shared in terms of my interests/goals, what advice would you have in terms of opportunities I should pursue and specific people who may have those opportunities or be able to refer me to opportunities?” • Understand what is going through their mind at this stage of the conversation. If they have some good advice, they will share it. If they have a good referral/tee-up for you, they may or may not share it immediately. They are most likely to connect you with someone they know really well or who owes them a favor. They may be hesitant to connect you with someone they don’t know very well unless it is obvious to them that you are an outstanding fit. If they say they don’t know anyone who would be ideal to connect you with or need to think about it for a while, then they may not yet be comfortable doing so. If they say you should speak with XYZ person(s) and do not offer to make an introduction, then request their contact information and ask if they would be comfortable with your mentioning in your correspondence that they suggested I reach out. (If they are not comfortable with your mentioning their name, then be sure not to do it). If they do offer to help you connect, then ask them how they would be most comfortable facilitating that introduction. Make sure you circle back and keep your contact posted on the progress you are making with the person they connected you to, as this is a great way to stay in touch. Step 3: Make it easy for them to help you. Your follow up requests should be as little work for them as possible. Here are four requests in ascending order of the amount of work required for them: • Can I say in my note that you recommended that I reach out? (no work for them other than providing the contact information) • Would you be willing to send their contact a heads up email that I plan to reach out to them? (moderate amount of work) • Would you be willing to do a quick email introduction for the two of us? (moderate amount of work) • Would you write/call on my behalf recommending they speak with me? (potentially a significant amount of work). If they say yes, then offer to give them a few bullet points to include in their note on what you are seeking to do and why you are a compelling person/candidate. Step 4: Finally, give them a platform that makes it easy and convenient for them to help you (and others) going forward and for you to help them.© 2009 Management Leadership For Tomorrow • 15 Maiden Lane, Suite 900 New York, NY 10038 • www.ml4t.org page 2
