Use Social Media to Get a Job

Posted by James M on May 21, 2012

I recently came across a couple of links that I wanted to share. They do a great job of explaining the basics of making social media work for you in your job search.

 

The first is from Mashable, and does a good job of explaining why you should use social media.

 

The second is from New Grad Life, and has a lot of tips and tricks to help maximize your social network, as well as how to expand it.

 

You would be really surprised by how much difference connections can make in getting a foot in the door. Even as a new college graduate I was able to network with friends who had just started with companies that were looking for more young employees, and even one friend who landed an HR job with Microsoft. So keep at it, and use those networks!!
