For employers that have many job applicants, being qualified on paper may not be sufficient to win job interviews. Even qualified candidates benefit from an internal advocate to raise their credentials and improve the odds of winning a job interview. Having an inside contact at a company is a major advantage over the competition.
Most job seekers don’t actively look to establish a personal connection with a company insider because:
- They’re afraid of appearing too pushing
- They’re afraid of being turned down or rejected
- Their negative self-talk gets in the way
- They have a fear of failure
- They have a fear of success
- They don’t believe people they don’t know will really (and willingly) help them
But getting company employees (including people who don’t even know you) to help you land a job at their company is easier than you realize.
