OUR MISSION:

CREATE YOUR BLITZ LIST

YOUR INSTRUCTIONS

STEP #1

  • Create a free LinkedIn Account if you don’t already have one.

STEP #2

  • Go to People > Advanced Search to identify up to 10 LOCAL companies that interest you as potential employers.
  • You’ll also need to find two POCs from each of your companies.
  • The POCs should be people who you feel are in a hiring authority position.

Ideas for POC #1:

  • This person should be the head of the Department where you would work. This person’s title will most likely be Director, Manager, Supervisor, or Lead. If it’s a small company of say 25 or less employees, it’s okay to include the CEO or VP in this spot.

Ideas for POC #2:

  • This person should be someone from the Human Resource or Talent Acquisition Department. If it’s a large company with 100 to 250 employees, put a POC with a mid-level Manager-type title in this spot. If it’s a small company with less than 100 employees, you can use a Director or top person.
  • If you spot another Veteran working at the company, definitely include him/her in either spot.
  • If you are unsure how to search for people on LinkedIn, watch this video.
  • Your POCs should be based within one hour of where you plan to live during SkillBridge.
  • Also, if you focus on small to midsize companies (roughly less than 250 employees), you’ll have much more success than if you only include big well-known companies.
  • It is extremely difficult for us to attract attention from hiring managers at large companies like Lockheed Martin, Google, Nike, etc.
