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.

MySpace Jobs

24 Aug

Recently I got an email from MySpace that they’ve added new features to their website. The trend recently is that MySpace has been on the downturn because other social networking platforms like Facebook are gaining popularity. Thus, I wasn’t surprised when I heard that MySpace was trying to stay relevant. So why not add a job board to your website when the economy is down?

The MySpace job portal in my analysis seems to be nothing more than one big refined Google search. The page layout and the actual results for same key terms are similar in Google and MySpace Jobs. The site does however feature a few videos that are strong in helping you land a new job. It also has a tab if you are looking to go back to school, you can search for a higher degree.

MySpace has added a new “Job” feature to their website, but it’s really just repositioning technology from Google. The bottom-line is that as long it’s a benefit for the users, it’s a benefit to the site.

McJobs at mcstate.com!

21 Nov

I was watching TV the other day and at the bottom of a regular McDonald’s ad I saw the URL of http://mcstate.com. I was surprised to find that the website was hub for directing folks to careers at the golden arches.

I decided to travel through the website and I found that it was simple to find open jobs in your local neighborhood. So in this tough economy if you are need of job and you haven’t thought of fast food, then check out a McJob, you never know where it may take you.

Side Note:
The Oxford English Dictionary currently describes a McJob as “an unstimulating low-paid job with few prospects” It first appeared in the online version of the Oxford English Dictionary in March 2001. In the UK, McDonalds are inviting its customers to sign petition books in its outlets , or alternatively via a new website, entitled Change The Definition.
