4 Tips on Using Social Media to Boost Your Job Search

  1. 1. When you want to find a job, you should think about how people now use technology. Gone are the days of opening a newspaper and circling ads.
  2. 2. Now people use third- party job placement websites. With these you can search for your ideal job and send resumes quickly.
  3. 3. Of course there is more to it than that. When looking for work you must also use social media.
  4. 4. Following are 4 tips on using social media to boost your job search.
  5. 5. During your search for employment, remember that companies routinely post their job openings. This is a great way to take a proactive approach to the situation since you can apply for jobs that others may not see.
  6. 6. A lot of people do not consider Facebook when looking for jobs. And don’t forget about LinkedIn and Twitter.
  7. 7. Luckily, when you can take a few minutes to ‘like’ and ‘follow’ companies you may want to work at, you can end up with the inside scoop.
  8. 8. Whether you block random people from seeing your profile or not, you should still clean it up and remove anything that potential employers will not like.
  9. 9. If you have pictures of yourself drinking or participating in activities you do NOT want potential bosses to see, you must clean up your profile.
  10. 10. Additionally, a smart job seeker should keep his or her profile neutral when it comes to politics and other subjects.
  11. 11. During a job search you should keep your Facebook, Twitter and other profile clean and without anything that will offend people.
  12. 12. Plenty of people overuse social media to talk to friends. On the other hand, if you are looking for work or want to explore your options, you should add relevant people to your social media accounts.
  13. 13. When you meet people in your day-to-day life, you will often run into those who could help you find a new job. To avoid missing out on an opportunity, add people you meet to your LinkedIn and other accounts
  14. 14. Remember, with social media, you can communicate with people easily.
  15. 15. Without a doubt, with Facebook and other social media sites, you can do a lot of research. This is extremely beneficial.
  16. 16. With Facebook, you can check out the company’s posts. Not only that, if employees leave their accounts open, you can take a peek into their lives.
  17. 17. It’s a great advantage, when walking into an interview, having the inside scoop on the hiring manager and other interviewers.
  18. 18. These days the use of social media is extremely important when job hunting.
  19. 19. Get the job you’ve always wanted by cleaning up your social accounts and presenting the right image.
