Finding A Job Using Social Media

Social media is all about building relationships and making connections, so it makes sense that if you are looking for a new job or career move that you should be using social networks to highlight your skills and showcase recommendations of your work. B

First things first, regardless of whether you are actually using social media to network and improve your chances of scoring your dream job, you need to be aware that many employers will Google prospective employees as part of their screening process, so make sure that your online identity portrays the all important professional first impression.

 

Your 2nd step is to get involved with LinkedIn. LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network with over 120 million members and growing rapidly. Signing up is free and connects you to your trusted contacts and helps you exchange knowledge, ideas, and opportunities with a broader network of professionals. So invest some time in setting up your profile and then learning how to "work it".

  

In times when candidates are in plentiful supply you need to be setting yourself apart from the crowd and what better way to introduce yourself than in a professional digital promo. YouTube is now the 2nd largest search engine in the UK which is hardly surprising considering that video captures our attention far more than one dimensional text so why not consider it for scoring yourself a job?  Good luck, don’t forget to email us with any of your success stories.
