I have a military commitment until May of 2021 and plan to transition to the Northeast upon completion, but am interested in taking advantage of Skill Bridge Programs or fellowships that start as early as January 2021. Given that most job postings will expire before then, I am looking to build my network in the Northeast, learn about potential opportunities for fellowships and employment, and get advice on how to strengthen my resume and chances of establishing a successful career in the region.
Hello Nicholas - that is a great 1st step in building your network in the industry and/or in the specific position that you are looking. If I can be of assistance - did not really see a question - let me know. I would be absolutely willing to be LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/garyrossibaldrigecoach/
Building your network now, in advance of your actual move is a smart decision. I would encourage you to develop a list of target companies and then try to use LinkedIn to network with people at those companies. You could ask people at those companies for help to understand their companies hiring process, or ask people the process they used to land their job or maybe eventually ask someone to submit you as a referral for a job at their company. Networking can be a big advantage if you can dedicate some time and focus towards it. Good luck.
