10 Unconventional Networking Strategies That Get Results

Three: I reached out to 1,000 complete strangers on LinkedIn

When I graduated from college and started looking for a job, I joined my college alumni group on LinkedIn.

I went through every member in the group to see if they were located in New York and if they worked in marketing/public relations.

I wrote a LinkedIn message to each person who fit that criteria and asked them for help (now called the “Alumni Networking Solution”).

I had so much success that I joined about 20 marketing/public relations groups on LinkedIn and used the same strategy.

I ended up emailing over 1,000 complete strangers.

Results: Everyone who responded gave me great advice, which helped me land my first job.

One of those people is my mentor and we have been talking for the last six years.

Lesson: Ask for help! People are willing to help you if you are polite and you ask them in the right way.
