Build a vocabulary of job titles that match your ideal role
Roles at different companies mean the different scope of responsibility. But how should you know which roles you should be seeking?
You should already have an idea of how your ideal role looks like. Write down the list of responsibilities you would expect to see in the job listing for this ideal role, ... and google it. Create a list of all possible variations of how your ideal role might be called in different companies.
Example: I want to build content strategies, manage content creation, and not write the content myself but rather manage a team of writers of an external agency, have the impact of inbound acquisition channels, manage content distribution, and maybe work closely with product teams.
From this list, I'm taking the main keywords and try to google them via angel.co
, the world's largest startup community and ecosystem where you can find a job in fast-growing companies. From our experience, this is one of the most extensive databases of high-quality job listings. Cool startups do care who to hire, so their job descriptions are very carefully written down.
So I google "develop content strategies, manage content creation, content distribution site:angel.co" (this combination of "site:+domain" allows searching exclusively on this website.
