Remote Work Junkie - Health benefits of WFH⚕️

 We’re seeing quite a bit of this lately...

If you are looking for work and see a job posting on LinkedIn, don't just comment or message the recruiter with “interested."

This gets you nowhere in the process nor positive attention.

Here's what to do instead:

1. Tailor your resume + cover letter, apply to the role.

Bonus, get creative with your application. Record a short personal video to send, create a small unprompted project or outline around something you'd do in the role, etc.

2. Like the social job post and even comment that you applied if you'd like.

That’s certainly okay to bring some awareness to yourself, but it can’t be the only thing you do.

3. Message the recruiter, but add some context to your message.

Saying "Interested in this role" or "I just applied, let me know if you got it" or some variation will not get you positive reactions, a response, or the interview.

Finding roles and standing out can feel like a full-time job because IT IS and especially in tough markets.

But you got to put in more than minimal effort. And generic comments and messages on LinkedIn won’t help you land your next great job.

And remember, we have resources, content, a vetted job board, and a talent network to help you land that flexible role you've been searching for 🫡

Happy Hunting!
