How to Connect with a Recruiter At a Company You Like

Posted by Brooke Lockhart on September 3, 2009

Linkedin is an incredible useful tool for anyone that is job hunting, but sometimes it can seem impersonal. If you want to contact an individual recruiter or hiring manager instead of sending generic emails into cyberspace, listen to what Chad Levitt has to say. Levitt suggests you use the Advanced Link at the top of the Linkedin homepage to search for a particular company you’re interested in.

 

Then, "use your intuition" to pick a recruiter that looks promising. Once chosen, send them an invite to connect with an appealing message that will peak their interest in you. Hopefully they will accept, or at least refer you to the right person.
