If it feels like you’re spending too much time on dead-end online job postings, or replying to recruiter inquiries for “nothing to see here” lateral positions, follow this five-step strategy to proactively pursue the job you really want.

  1. Write out the names of companies that interest you, and that you would most like to work for.
  2. Search LinkedIn for the names of senior and top-level executives in the departments of your areas of expertise.
  3. Actively follow them on LinkedIn and other social media platforms. Make short, relevant comments on their posts.
  4. Reach out directly and connect.
  5. Reach out again to maintain connection and to potentially discuss industry trends, and challenges and gather more information.
