getting your job searching startedon social networks

• Twitter:– Pace yourself – Try getting into a routine of updating at least once 2x a week– Search for and join in on relevant convos of interest to you

• LinkedIn:– Fill in as much as you are comfortable with on your profile– Find and join groups that interest you– Personalize your invitations to connect– Acknowledge those who want to connect with you

• Facebook:– Search for industry events and find 1-2 you can attend– If comfortable, a good profile photo helps to humanize you– When you join a group, leave a small note to introduce yourself

Page 47: Using Social Networks as Job Searching Tools

• “Those who embrace and exploit these newer technologies will gain a significant advantage over their colleagues who are restricting themselves to established job search methods”

• Joel Cheesman, recruitment issues blogger @ cheezehead.com

• Gaining a significant web presence is so crucial in a job search – “Some recruiters who won’t call you unless you have a presence

and significant Google visibility.”• Martin Buckland, recruiter

• “Make sure you have your work history, little bit about yourself, and ways you can be reached (create a new gmail or hotmail or whatever if you want to keep your personal one private)”

• Marin K. Burns, Recruiting Manager, Gardner Resources
