How can I grow my popularity with potential employers at Disney through LinkedIn posts?

I currently work as a project manager for a commercial real estate company, which I love, but the dream is to someday work as a consultant for Disney or work for the Disney Company. I want to have more virtual coffee meetings with some of their employees and I'm wanting to know how to stand out to them to where they'd want to meet with me.

Hi Emily! Great question. I would recommend searching for active Disney employees that work in the relevant departments you want to get into and start following them.

It's extremely important that they are active. Check their profiles to make sure they are either posting content or commenting on other's posts. If they aren't you'll never be able to engage with them.

Then, I would check their accounts regularly and react to and comment on any posts they make. You want your comments to be engaging. Not just "love this" make sure you are adding to the conversation.

After awhile you should be able to build enough rapport where you can send a connection request and get them into your network.

Once they're in your network now you will have a greater chance of catching their eye with your content. Hope that helps!

Hey emily,

I recommend focusing on networking instead of perfect LinkedIn posts unless if you want to manage their social media accounts for a living (even then, you'll need relationships with people currently working at Disney to get the job).

People control everything. So networking is how people get to know you. Unfortunately, with jobs, there is A LOT of competition so relationships are often how people make decisions. The best way to network is start where you are with people who have a connection to you (friend of parents, parents of friends, people going to the college you are going to or who recently graduated from there, etc.). My TEDx (below) takes you through what type of message to send, what to do in the meeting, and how to build a community through networking instead of just a list of acquaintances.

Best,
John

Hi,

If your goal is to work for Disney or be an consultant of Disney's; the first thing I would do on my LinkedIn profile is look for their leadership in which you can follow them on their daily or weekly posts on LinkedIn. You can also look for other LinkedIn Disney workers and ask if they will network with you because you have a goal one day of being part of their organization.

The Disney organization must have an Public Relations division in which you can try and reach out to, LinkedIn - network with as well and start researching the organization via internet in what organizations they work, partner with. You can also reach out to their Human Resources team and look to LinedIn/network their as well.

Develop relationships, know everything about Disney from their parks, movies, shows, what they do in the communities; start knowing everything about the organization and good luck!

You can make this happen, but you to do your homework/research, make a plan, execute that plan and be able to maneuver if you need to adjust it. You can also look at Disney park internships as well.

Good luck.
