1 actionable tip to grow your salesforce career.
Today’s issue will take about 4 mins to read.
In today’s issue, I’m going to share 4 job search steps that will likely increase your referral rate by 80% or more.
With inflation through the roof, there hasn’t been a more crucial time to skill up and improve your salary.
So, without further delay
Let’s jump into this week’s tip
Step 1: Search Jobs on Linkedin
Letting a paper describe you is an old relic of the industrial age.
And instead, Maximize your time on Linkedin.
Personality, how you think, what you’ve accomplished – that’s the plus of scouting for jobs here.
Step 2: Visit Company Profile
One of the most underrated places on LinkedIn is company profiles.
You find the 2 most important ppl here:
Click “People” tab
Search [Recruiter] OR [Salesforce]
As soon as you find a role you want to apply for, go to the company page and search for these 2 people.
They tend to be the key to you being accepted or rejected.
Step 3: Connect and ask
Okay, you found the 2 ppl you want to know – now build a relationship.
You do that by sending a DM.
Here’s why this works well:
Shows you want the job
Directs you to the decision-maker
Puts pressure on someone like me to help you
Turns you from a paper to a person they will know
This week, someone did this to me and it worked - I referred them 😅
(btw my company Vercel is hiring a service cloud admin)
Step 4: Thank you follow up
Life is about who you know, not as much what you know.
Regardless of you getting this specific job or not, send them a thank you DM for their time. 5 job offers I got this month were due to me keeping a good relationship with ppl even after “it didn’t work out”.
If the goal is getting a job…
It’s better to 5X the effort on 1 job vs. 1X the effort on 5 jobs.
Go deep, not wide.
That’s all for this week. 1 simple salesforce tip to grow your career.
