Land A JobAre you looking for a job? If you are, it’s time to be BOLD! According to local Hawaiian author and Punahou grad Melanie Feldman… “To get a job in today’s market, you need to make bold moves.”

Feldman is the co-author of an exciting new book called: “Bold: Get Noticed, Get Hired.” In a recent interview, she shared her Top 5 Tips to securing your dream job.

Tip #1: Update your LinkedIn profile. Most companies will look at LinkedIn as it’s first reference point.

Tip #2: Use your LinkedIn account to connect with people at the companies you want to work for. If you can connect with one person at that company, you can potentially connect with more.

Tip #3: Leverage your Alumni network. Tap into your connections from college to get an introduction at the companies they work for. Or to collect personal references you can use now and in the future.

Tip #4: Focus on creating value for others before asking for their help. Think, “What can I do for others who I want to connect with?”

Tip #5: Be Bold. Put yourself out there and stand out from your competition. Each of the 23 people who have success stories in Melanie’s book did something bold and unusual to land their job. What can you do to stand out from the crowd?
