Job search: Deploying your network on LinkedIn

Each week, on the job4U2 Circle, I share some ideas about networking places.

In the last weeks, idea proposals were:
  •        Expats Business Networking Events at BERNEXPO in Bern
  •        Cantons expat network events ( eg. Bern expat breakfast)
  •        Swonet chill out in Fribourg
  •        …and many others

This week idea is a little bit different and is replaced by a virtual networking exercise proposal! 

I proposed to all the job4U2 members to take advantage of this group to grow their linkedIn network, by connecting with each other. 

Why: to be efficient, your linkedIn network should count a very minimum of 60 first level connections (ideally in area of interest; Switzerland)

The more you have SECOND LEVEL connections, the more visibility you have on linkedIn members of interest. This is really useful when preparing for an application; you can find out who is doing what, see their background, their education and sometime their full job description...

If you are interested by the topic networking in Switzerland and if you are a dual-career spouse, join us on the job4U2 Circle HERE
