From the Christian Science Monitor comes their Top 10 Social Media Tips For The Job Hunt (I like #3 Be Interesting.)
Then there’s Social Media Commando’s 10 Social Media Job Search Tips. (Use caution with #4 Create A Web Video Resume. Experts disagree about whether or not these are effective. One misstep and you could find an audience you didn’t expect or want).
And there’s Job-Hunt.org The current darling of job search sites. You could spend days and days researching information about jobs and how to conduct a job search – there’s the rub. Don’t confuse research with actually accomplishing something.
Here are my top three social media tips.
- Join LinkedIn – create an interesting profile, join AND be involved in a few groups.
- Start a blog and connect with others by reading blogs related to your field and comment when appropriate. (promise yourself to post to your blog every day for thirty days).
- Tell others that you are looking and what you are looking for (it’s amazing to me how many people skip this step).
