Leveraging the
Internet and Social
Media for Your Job
Search
                Kathleen Smith
              ClearedJobs.Net
       National Military Spouse
          Employment Summit
My typical audience
But you are already a
very social media
savvy community!
What could I possibly
share with you?
Maybe just a new
way of looking at
things
Ways to leverage social
media and your use of the
internet…
 Promoting yourself for
 a new job.
 Advertising your
 business.
 Finding a full time,
 part time or contract
 job.
 Researching volunteer
 opportunities.
Being “available” for your
different communities …..
Are you available in the ways
that your customer wants to
reach you?
It’s great that you are part of
XYZ community but if the
person who is looking for you
is in ABC community, how will
you connect?
Email address – not a time to
advertise your interests.
Cell phone – not the time to
share insights into your world.
Be a connector, not a stalker.
Doing the SWOT on
     the Brand of You….
Strengths……
Skills, abilities, clearance, SME
Work style
Network

Weaknesses…..
Do you need more .edu or certs?
Holes in your network?

Opportunities…
Learning new skills
Ability to move

Threats……
Does your brand need an overhaul?
Limited skill set?
Career sites for research
finding open positions
Your
   “relationship”
   with a Career
   Site…..

Searching for positions
to see what is out there.
Registering for the site
by setting up a profile.
Registering a la carte
services such as
newsletters or job fairs.
Career Sites
Career Sites can be as generic
as Monster or as niche as
ClearedJobs.Net
Career Sites’ revenue comes
from advertising job postings,
resume database licenses and
other services that are charged
to employers – not Job Seekers
Start wide with your search to
understand who is hiring, where
they are hiring and what kind of
positions match your skill set
Finding the job descriptions with
the “keywords” to put in your
resume
Why set up an
account on a
Career Site?
Apply for jobs on the site
rather than uploading your
resume from your desktop
Ability to manage your job
applications and position
searches
You can develop “Job
Agents” which search job
postings for you “24/7”
You can see how often
your resume is viewed by
recruiters – why is this
important?
Remember to refresh your
resume every 30 days
Job boards all have the same
basic functionality: setting up a
profile, researching job
postings, applying for jobs and
statistics.

Some job postings will take you
to another site for applying for
the job so that this can be linked
to an ATS.
Where else should I register? Your “Favorite”
Company Website
Set up a profile on a company career site as this is first place a
company recruiter will look

OFCCP – (Hint : it’s not a rap song)

Other key information such as benefits and reviewing the overall
corporate culture
Becoming an online
Contractor
You are a “contractor” not an
employee, paid by project not by the
hour.
Most contractors have their own
business – graphic designer, writer,
computer programmer.
Set up your own portfolio and your
own site such using
www.weebly.com.
Most sites will ask you to take tests
to see your qualifications.
(Competitive and filled with scams)
www.freelanced.com
www. Guru.com
www.elance.com
www.ODesk.com
Helpful videos on YouTube such
as “Are You Bidding On The
Wrong Elance, Vworker, and
Odesk Projects?”
What is the top
way to find a
job?




   Networking
Social Media Used for
Recruiting

Social recruiting has been around
forever, it just moved online in the
last 10 years.
But, not everyone is using it.
The challenge is knowing who is
and who isn’t, which you won’t
know.
It is one aspect of marketing “You”:
Are you using social media for
“social” or career development?
Remember that your customers
might be on different communication
channels.
What do your profiles say about
you?
Do you have the settings updated?
Are you sharing too much or the
wrong thing?
Employers will use social media to
screen potential hires.

You will get flagged if you
try to connect with people
you do not know
Find company info and
make connections
LinkedIn Groups
Military LinkedIn Groups


In searching the Groups
Directory there are 18 groups
for military spouses and 23
military employers but this is
just the beginning.


Job postings and connecting
with recruiters and other
business owners will be part of
promoting yourself.
Entrepreneurial and can do
spirit
List all volunteer work on
resumes and profiles
Note station assignments on
resume to explain gaps in
resume and list that you are a
military spouse
Familiarity with military
jargon, culture and can work
on base
"You can make more
            friends in two months by
            becoming interested in
            other people than you
            can in two years by trying
            to get other people
            interested in you.“


 Dale Carnegie, How to Win
Friends and Influence People
Thank
you!

National Military Spouse Employment Summit

  • 1. Leveraging the Internet and Social Media for Your Job Search Kathleen Smith ClearedJobs.Net National Military Spouse Employment Summit
  • 3. But you are already a very social media savvy community! What could I possibly share with you?
  • 4. Maybe just a new way of looking at things
  • 5. Ways to leverage social media and your use of the internet… Promoting yourself for a new job. Advertising your business. Finding a full time, part time or contract job. Researching volunteer opportunities.
  • 6. Being “available” for your different communities ….. Are you available in the ways that your customer wants to reach you? It’s great that you are part of XYZ community but if the person who is looking for you is in ABC community, how will you connect? Email address – not a time to advertise your interests. Cell phone – not the time to share insights into your world. Be a connector, not a stalker.
  • 7. Doing the SWOT on the Brand of You…. Strengths…… Skills, abilities, clearance, SME Work style Network Weaknesses….. Do you need more .edu or certs? Holes in your network? Opportunities… Learning new skills Ability to move Threats…… Does your brand need an overhaul? Limited skill set?
  • 8. Career sites for research finding open positions
  • 9. Your “relationship” with a Career Site….. Searching for positions to see what is out there. Registering for the site by setting up a profile. Registering a la carte services such as newsletters or job fairs.
  • 10. Career Sites Career Sites can be as generic as Monster or as niche as ClearedJobs.Net Career Sites’ revenue comes from advertising job postings, resume database licenses and other services that are charged to employers – not Job Seekers Start wide with your search to understand who is hiring, where they are hiring and what kind of positions match your skill set Finding the job descriptions with the “keywords” to put in your resume
  • 11. Why set up an account on a Career Site? Apply for jobs on the site rather than uploading your resume from your desktop Ability to manage your job applications and position searches You can develop “Job Agents” which search job postings for you “24/7” You can see how often your resume is viewed by recruiters – why is this important? Remember to refresh your resume every 30 days
  • 12. Job boards all have the same basic functionality: setting up a profile, researching job postings, applying for jobs and statistics. Some job postings will take you to another site for applying for the job so that this can be linked to an ATS.
  • 13. Where else should I register? Your “Favorite” Company Website Set up a profile on a company career site as this is first place a company recruiter will look OFCCP – (Hint : it’s not a rap song) Other key information such as benefits and reviewing the overall corporate culture
  • 14. Becoming an online Contractor You are a “contractor” not an employee, paid by project not by the hour. Most contractors have their own business – graphic designer, writer, computer programmer. Set up your own portfolio and your own site such using www.weebly.com. Most sites will ask you to take tests to see your qualifications. (Competitive and filled with scams) www.freelanced.com www. Guru.com www.elance.com www.ODesk.com Helpful videos on YouTube such as “Are You Bidding On The Wrong Elance, Vworker, and Odesk Projects?”
  • 15. What is the top way to find a job? Networking
  • 16. Social Media Used for Recruiting Social recruiting has been around forever, it just moved online in the last 10 years. But, not everyone is using it. The challenge is knowing who is and who isn’t, which you won’t know. It is one aspect of marketing “You”: Are you using social media for “social” or career development? Remember that your customers might be on different communication channels. What do your profiles say about you? Do you have the settings updated? Are you sharing too much or the wrong thing?
  • 17. Employers will use social media to screen potential hires. Source: Recruiting Toolbox 2011 Survey of 300 employers
  • 19. Ways to Use Twitter to support your career search and development In your profile “bio” include your skills and information recruiters to search Follow companies that you are interested in and/or their job posting feed Follow and connect with individual and company recruiters (their Twitter handles will be on their LinkedIn profiles) Subject Matter Expert’s (SME) in the industry or community you want to work Setting up a search string “military spouse jobs”
  • 20. Connecting with employer communities Search string for “military spouse jobs” to find positions and accounts to follow
  • 21. social communication for added reach and networking
  • 22. You never know who might be able to help your job search.
  • 23. Ways to Use Facebook to support your career search and development Active user of Facebook? Be sure to set up the lists of people you share information with between your close BFFs and the general public; Fill out your profile similar to your resume if you are in an active search Not on Facebook? Set up a minimum profile to be able to communicate and be found “Like” companies, organizations, government agencies Be part of key trade association groups in the industry
