BiciTALENT Recruitment Tips - Part 7


Buongiorno pianeta,


is one of the greetings I love most when I open LinkedIn in the morning.


Pierre has been following us from the beginning as he is looking for a job.


Unfortunately we rarely have job openings in Italy, so I haven't been able to find him a job... yet.


But I do admire him so much.


Every day Pierre has a post starting with "Buongiorno pianeta" - "Goodmorning planet" and every day his posts are a true piece of art. My Italian has been better, so sometimes I am very grateful for the translation button.


Why am I telling you about Pierre?


Engagement. He is a true example of social engagement on LinkedIn. It could also be an Italian thing.


But:


The more you engage with people, the more people will tend to engage with you, the more you will make your network grow.


Congratulate when someone gets a new job.

Don't just add a thumbs up, but actually comment.


Find something nice to say, and you will notice: people will start doing the same with you.


Should you have higher ambitions, you can also consider publishing an article, adding your portfolio or starting a blog.


Talk about yourself, let us know who you are. Yes, quite right, this isn't Facebook. But why shouldn't it be allowed to give a little bit of a sneek peek into your office (or outdoor) life.
