Leverage Social Media in Your Job Search
Most job seekers aren’t using their biggest asset when it comes to searching for a new position: social media. Your social network can be your biggest advocate. And that doesn’t mean the LinkedIn profile you created five years ago…
Update your LinkedIn profile to include your skill set, positions, accomplishments and get recommendations. The first step is making yourself visible and likable to potential hiring companies. Think of your LinkedIn profile as your digital resume – it should highlight the things you think matter.
When it comes to Facebook and more personal social media, if you wouldn’t want your parents, co-workers or children to see it, don’t have it publicly available on Facebook. This may mean cleaning up drinking pictures or inappropriate language.
