Check out Silicon Republic’s article about how companies are using social media to attract talent.
And not only tech companies.
Behemoths like CNN use Twitter, Facebook, and/or LinkedIn to make announcements, introduce programming, and post jobs. Agents and recruiters troll for talent and check online profiles. Executives read blogs to keep current on trends and keep tabs on the competition. Television producers locate ‘experts’ for talk shows and entertainment reports.
If you’re in the job market it’s an opportunity to show off. Don’t rely solely on job boards. Create a LinkedIn profile. Post a YouTube video. Launch a Facebook page. Build a following on Twitter.
Make the job come to you.
