|Amit Giri - Yes, I got hired through LinkedIn. #TrueStory|
I was working fine in a nice company named as Chakra Systems and a sister company of Chakra Systems which is a Digital Marketing Company with good working environment included colleagues and boss. But due to some personal reasons I was looking for job location change and here things changes.
As a Digital Marketing professional I was trying to communicate with people over LinkedIn obviously before that I was having already an updated LinkedIn profile with well defined work profile and suitable keywords.
Due to daily activities and suitable keywords my profile was more viewable while searching in LinkedIn. On an average basis I use to get daily 8 – 12 message related to various thing included promotion as well as job opening in local location (Bangalore) and in my preferred location (Delhi NCR) too.
So I got a chance to connect with one of the best Software Company’s (located in Delhi NCR) HR Manager and HR manager shared my profile with his CEO then CEO shared a message about the job opening in his company related to my profile asked to revert if I am interested for the same. After that I replied as I was looking for location change then HR took my updated resume and scheduled the preliminary telephonic interview. After that I got an assignment from the CEO to make a digital marketing plan for given software product (which showed my skills). Later HR scheduled multiple telephonic and Skype interviews (due to location difference) with various senior people with whom I need to work with and finally the offered me a job. I accepted the offer and moved for the rest of the process.
It was a quite great experience for me to get hired through LinkedIn. If you want any help to get a job with LinkedIn just share a message so I can provide the some tips / solutions / my views on the same. Any suggestions for me are welcomed in any of area I need to improve. Looking for various comments as a support from your side.
