Transcript

  • 1. Job Search 2.0<br />Why is Google is your new best friend — or worst enemy<br />
  • 2. Why am I here?<br />From law school applicant to social media strategist<br />Huh?<br />
  • 3. How did I get there?<br />I “tweeted my way to a job” – I built my brand online (and off)<br />I’m happiest when I can blend my passions for strategy, creativity and efficiency to produce high-quality, budget-friendly results. <br />
  • 4. What is a social media strategist?<br />Tweet, blog, Facebook, SlideShare, YouTube on behalf of Optimal Resume<br />Help our clients with their social media strategies<br />Handle most PR and communication matters (added benefit of working at a small company)<br />Media relations, corporate communications, etc. <br />
  • 5. “What’s in it for me?”<br />How can you have your own social media success story?<br />
  • 6. Employer = Customer<br />Hiring is buying – an employee is a major purchase, and the employer wants to be sure that it’s making the right choice<br />
  • 7. What do you do before you buy?<br />Research – probably on Google<br />Employers do too – 75% Google candidates<br />
  • 8. What are they looking for?<br />What does a consumer want to know about a product before buying?<br />
  • 9. Stages of Buying<br />Research – gathering candidates<br />Disqualifying – eliminating based on negatives<br />Differentiating – promoting based on positives<br />Industry leaders; up to date and current<br />Case studies – satisfied customers and possible applications for you<br />
  • 10. They’ve joined the 21st century<br />Would you buy something from a company that doesn’t exist in Google?<br />Don’t be a digital question mark; you want results when someone Googles your name<br />
  • 11. It should look like this<br />
  • 12. NOT this<br />Want Google results to be clean – no negative reviews, images, etc.<br />Think before you post<br />
  • 13. Professional network<br />Why do professionals belong to associations?<br />LinkedIn shows that you’re connected professionally<br />
  • 14. Satisfied customers<br />Like companies use client testimonials, LinkedIn recommendations show that other “customers” have been satisfied with your work<br />
  • 15. They’re keeping up<br />Is the company keeping up with the industry?<br />Use Twitter to show that you’re thinking about your industry, are keeping up with news and know key influencers<br />
  • 16. Their process<br />What’s the company’s thought process? Do you agree with their opinions and how they make decisions?<br />A blog lets you demonstrate your thought process &amp; share your insights <br />
  • 17. Customers are lazy<br />Make it easy for them to find all that information – create a website that ties it all together (plug: You can actually do that with Optimal Resume) <br />
  • 18. Recommendations<br />LinkedIn – you MUST be here<br />Twitter – follow thought leaders, demonstrate your interest in and knowledge of PR<br />Blog – doesn’t have to be time consuming (can also be your website); can use class/extracurricular work for posts <br />Facebook? Some things are better left private<br />
