What’s the best way to find a job?  It’s still networking.  After that, responding to jobs posting is where most job seekers go.  What if you could make your search more targeted?  You can by thinking strategically and doing a little research.  Use LinkedIn to find people who have similar professional and educational backgrounds.  Where do they work?  Where did they work at their previous jobs?  What titles have they held?  You can then look at those companies to see if they have open positions.  You can also use the titles you found to perform more focused online searches.  Your job search will be more focused, the more you research and analyze people who have a similar background.  This method is more work than simply responding to posts, but it gives you more control over your job search. Give yourself a better chance.  Take control of your job search.
