Monitoring Job Announcements

Are you watching job announcements these days to discover: 

  •  who is getting promoted
  •  who is moving to a new organization
  •  who is retiring? 

I saw an announcement last week about a former colleague’s promotion in an industry e-newsletter.  I quickly sent him a congratulatory e-mail.  No surprise, his former position is now posted on the company job board. 

So, I recommend that you take the time to monitor these announcements  – in newspapers, company and professional association websites, professional journals and industry e-newsletters.  They may be opportunities for you:

  •  to re-ignite your connections with past colleagues,and other people in your network (They may need your help in their new position.); and
  • identify positions that may be open now so you can quickly jump on the opportunity.
