Today: Call a Job Seeker

Whether you are in a job search or not, I invite you to call a job seeker.

That’s right… out of the blue, pick up the phone and have a real conversation.

You could say something like:

I was just thinking of you and wanted to see how your job search was going. Is there anything I can do?

You might not get far, so here are some other questions:

  • Is there anyone you are trying to network into?
  • Are there any companies you are trying to network into?
  • What industries are you targeting?
  • Can you have lunch next week with me?
  • What networking events are you going to?
  • I have a friend who just got laid off, do you think you can share some ideas and tips with him?

Job seekers need help but many times they are at a point where they don’t want to call you and ask you for help (they might not know how to ask for help).  So why don’t you extend a helping hand to them?

Even if you don’t help them land a job, the mere effort and interest you show can change their day 1000%.
