The “Zero Time Suck” LinkedIn Strategy
Not many senior executives have several spare hours a day to spend on LinkedIn. In fact, I often find those who have successful careers are usually the ones with the least time or inclination for social media platforms.
It can feel overwhelming wading through the multitude of random connection invitations, or scrolling through endless articles and information but…
… as a job seeker, you must be present, active, and engaged on this platform.
It’s a catch 22. You have to be on LinkedIn to create exciting job opportunities for yourself but you don’t have the time nor interest to spend every waking moment there. So, in order to help you create a zero time suck LinkedIn strategy so you can stand out and use the platform more effectively without wasting time…
…I want share 4 tips that executive job seekers need to implement to make LinkedIn powerfully useful in a short time period:
(1) Ensure you set a dedicated time aside, such as 15-30 minutes, for your LinkedIn lead generation.
(2) Set yourself with specific tasks that you accomplish during this scheduled time. Examples of tasks can be “find 10 manufacturing COOs in Atlanta” or “reach out to 4 Directors of Finance to schedule networking chats”.
(3) Reverse engineer the steps back from your set goals in landing a new position. Who do you need to speak to? Where do you find those people? How many people in these categories have I had chats with?
(4) And don’t forget your follow up time. Schedule time for this action, too.
