JOB SEARCH

How To Find Employer Job Posts (On LinkedIn) | David Hannan

Not all employers use LinkedIn’s job board to announce openings. It can be quite expensive. Additionally, companies often prefer to hire referred candidates. Employees will often post job opportunities on LinkedIn as posts. So how do you find them? This hack lays it out simply.

Targeting Employers

One of the best ways to take control of your job search is by creating a list of companies YOU would like to work for. This serves a couple of purposes. First, you can follow these companies on LinkedIn and see what they are posting about. Second, you can look for employees on LinkedIn who work there and who are your connections and reach out to those in similar roles and connect with them. Third, you can go directly to their careers site on their website and look at jobs posted there. I wrote about targeting companies here.
