Create a list of the kinds of employers and opportunities that would be a great match for your skills and interests. Have specific companies and job titles in mind, when possible. If you know the type of place where you’d like to work, but don’t yet know the names of any specific companies, use the list you’ve drafted to begin finding them and ask others if they know of an employer that fits such a description. When your contacts have a clear picture of the jobs and companies you seek, they’re more likely to recognise and share appropriate opportunities with you. It’s up to you to paint this picture for them.
