In the world of technology, submitting an application online
is simply not enough. Some job search engines show how many other applicants
there are that applied for the job. With my own job hunting experience, I’ve
seen 500 or more applicants and would automatically get discouraged from
applying. I knew that finding the right entry level position would be difficult
but I discovered that it is very competitive. There are a lot of people that
have the educational background and job-related
experience that the job requires. So how does one stand out from the crowd?
I started using LinkedIn because my professor suggested that
I create an account. But most recently, as a soon to be graduate, I’ve decided to use LinkedIn to apply for jobs,
connecting with employers from companies, and comparing my qualifications to
someone in my desired position.
LinkedIn is the
world’s largest professional network. It has three basic functions:
- Build your professional identity online and stay
in touch with colleagues and classmates
- Discover internship and professional
opportunities, business deals, and new ventures
- Get the latest news, inspiration, and insights you need to be great at what you do
An article by WorkitDaily, 4 Ways to Stand Out to Employers, the second way listed was to “contact the HR director directly.”
Although it may be difficult to connect with strangers, LinkedIn is used to
make this task easier.
MEDC Director of Talent Attraction and Resources, Cynthia
Richardson says, “A recent survey by
LinkedIn indicates that 85% of professionals find their next career opportunity
through networking. LinkedIn is a great resource to develop and maintain your
professional relationships or find your
next great hire. It is key to truly network with professionals you know or to
work within your network who may introduce you to new connections. Networking
will not work if you are not sincere about how you build your professional
Making the initiative to personally contact the HR director
of a company makes you stand out from everyone. In a competitive and digital
job market, it’s important to make yourself memorable to land your next
internship or your next your dream job.

LaTya Jefferson is a
Talent Team intern with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, working
to develop content for our external and internal newsletters, highlighting
success stories, programs, and resources for business attraction.
As a Michigan State University alumna
and Michigan business owner, Kate Snyder uses the state’s resources to help
grow Michigan’s economy. Although Kate had several opportunities to leave the
state and do great things, she built a career in her hometown, while creating
opportunities for others. The company
she founded, Piper and Gold Public Relations, is a boutique agency which means
it’s small by choice and highly specialized. Through her business, Kate and her
team are working to transform the economy and community of Michigan to reach
its “vibrant and thriving” potential. She serves a variety of clients including
government agencies, nonprofits, associations and small businesses while empowering
others to make a difference.
Not only has Kate helped her clients
but she’s also connected students to opportunities within her company. A Piper
and Gold internship is a one of a kind program that gives students’ hands-on
experience and Kate has been able to hire two interns with the help of the
Small Company Innovation Award (SCIA).
“Michigan has come so far in the 15
years I’ve been working professionally, but still has a long way to go in terms
of reflecting many of my values,” said Snyder. “There are places around the country where I see things like equality,
inclusion, progressive urban planning, the arts and public education supported
in deed and in dollar, and it’s hard not to feel jealous or some sort of pull
when I visit communities like Columbus or Minneapolis. But at the end of the
day, I wanted to be a part of the change. I want to spend my time and energy working
to help Michigan become the kind of place I want to live and now, to raise my
son. So I’ve spent my career in public service, and now working with government
agencies and nonprofits that are striving to transform Michigan into the kind
of place I’ve always wanted to be.”
The SCIA grant is provided through the
Michigan Corporate Relations Network whose mission among other things is to set
up university-to-business connections. SCIA offers Michigan businesses the
opportunity to hire qualified students to work as interns or co-op students on
innovative, mutually beneficial projects, providing 1:1 matching funds for
10-16 week internships.
“I strongly believe that government programs
can help spur startup growth and success,” said Snyder “This program seemed
like a great fit for our agency when we were just starting out to help increase
how much I was able to pay student employees and to help me keep them on more
sustainably as a young company.”
When asked how the award helped her,
Kate said “For P&G, SCIA was a
turning point in formalizing our program and in allowing us to offer more
competitive, longer internships. We were able to move from stipends to hourly
rates and increase those rates, while also retaining students past one semester
to multi-semester internships as well as retaining them as full-time employees after
