Social Media Job Strategy

18 Dec

Are you looking for a job? Are you using social media? If you are using social media then you need to be careful what you say, confirm you’re on the right networks and clean-up your digital presence. If you are not using social media, then you need to start using it to your advantage. Below are three tips to use social media to land a job.

1. Clean-up Your Digital Path
Do you have that old MySpace account you never use? Are you there strange pictures on your Facebook page you’ve posted? I suggest if you clean-up anything that may raise any eye-brow by a potential employer.

2. Join The Right Networks
The top four networks are Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and LinkedIn. If you are not on LinkedIn, sign-up and start make connections. You would be surprised how you may be able to connect to future employers.

3. Talk As If Your Mom Were Listening
You may think because your conversations are protected behind privacy control but the reality is there are ways for potential employers to read your posts. I have heard where employers setup hidden accounts, get you to accept, and then read your posts. Just remember, you should speak as if your mom was listening.
