HOW TO DIRECTIONS:
1) Tell them Dave Mendoza from SixDegrees from Dave recommended you Connect. (I Double Check ! Serious I always find out who hasn’t given credit)
2) NEVER, EVER – solicit, spam those listed. You will be removed as a member. It undermines the reputation of our approach to extend authentic and sincere, networking value. 3) Even if tempted because you are seeking job opportunities and you see a manager – best to start subtle, outreach with a paragraph about yourself in your invite – ask how you can bring value – First.
Send invites that include your contact signature, and a bio paragraph to make a lasting first impression.
The “Six Degrees From Dave” Power Networking Engine is a semi-weekly newsletter with interviews and a Top Ten+ featuring personally recommended Staffing Industry Thought Leaders, Corporate Staffing Executives, Sourcing Gurus, and practitioners with three common attributes – proven industry recognition, idea generators committed to enhancing their craft, and who I have either met in person or developed a relationship which in some capacity has reinforced their commitment to open networking. You can receive regular listings of personally vetted contacts open to receiving your “Invite to Connect” and at no-cost. In fact, at it’s pinnacle, SixDegrees has been responsible for upwards of 500 invites on behalf of each person featured, 5,000 invites in a week and 20,000 invites in a month. No networking group has proven such viral strength in evangelizing networking within the staffing industry. Moreover, we provide in-depth stories profiling heroes of the employment industry – innovative recruiters and sourcing gurus that labor every day to devise ways to meet employers’ most pressing demands for talent. Through their stories, we spotlight global staffing practices, leading-edge sourcing techniques and best practices. So much value, and all we ask? “Pay It Forward” to help one another by inviting each other to connect. Simple. Click the listing links, upload with easy directions, and develop valuable, new contacts.
