Most people find a job search to be unpleasant. Many folks dread it. Looking for a new job is at best, a time-consuming hassle. But for many, it’s downright depressing. A traditional job search will usually trigger these types of experiences because employers are reviewing job applicants differently today. Businesses are now using social networking sites to evaluate candidates. A Reppler Survey of 300 people involved in the hiring process found 91% of those people use social media to screen applicants. If you’re a job seeker, you can use this to your advantage but you’ve got to stop using traditional techniques to find your dream job and start using social media.
Leverage Social Media to Improve Your Job Search
This slide presentation I gave to the Boulder Jewish Community Career (JCC) Network will show you how to use social media to make your job search better, and increase the likelihood of getting hired. You’ll discover:
- Social activity employers look at
- How to brand yourself on the social web
- Social habits that will help you land a job
- Tools that assess your online reputation and tips on how to polish up your online standing
The folks at the JCC found the presentation helpful.
