  • First up is LinkedIn. Many of you are probably familiar with LinkedIn as it is the world’s most popular social media tool for professional associations. It allows users to create an online personal resume, add other people as professional connections, participate in work related discussions and follow the events of various companies via company pages and groups. A few activities and lingo terms associated with LinkedIn…You can “Connect” with others (friends, peers) at various levels – your direct connections are considered 1st level. “Follow Company” to receive company posted status updates and other information or “JoinGroup” to join a specific interest group, participate in discussions, view jobs, etc. You can only be a member of 50 groups at a time. You can start a “Discussion” within a group, “Like” or “Comment” on a person or group’s status update, comment, discussion topic, and even “Share a Link” from a status update or comment with your network. Special to LinkedIn are “InMails” These are messages that you pay to send to someone outside of your 1st connection network – currently they are approximately $10 per InMail message, which can add up!
  • Facebook is the next social media site – and despite it appearing second in our presentation, it is the world’s most popular social media tool. It allows users to create a personal profile, add other users as friends, exchange messages, share information and media. Facebook also allows members to participate in interest groups, follow particular companies and play online games. Very similar lingo and activities to LinkedIn, but there a few noticeable differences. You can “Like” a company page to follow their page’s updates as well as “Like” a post, comment, or photo . You can also “Comment” onand “Share” posts, images, videos, etc. On Facebook, you “AddFriends” to connect with a person’s profile. You can also send a “Message” to people or company pages privately and for free!
  • Finally, lets review Twitter – this social media site is a popular networking tool that allows users to send a short, mostly text-based message that’s up to 140 characters long known as a tweet. These tweets are then published on the web. Users can send their own tweets, follow the tweets of other users and companies or contribute to a wider online discussion based on a particular topic or event. Twitter has very unique lingo and activities as opposed to Facebook and LinkedIn. As I mentioned, you can “tweet” a 140-character limited post and even “re-tweet” which is republishing another person’s tweet to share with your network. You can re-tweet by copying the post and typing “RT @username” or clicking the “re-tweet” button. You can reply to someone’s tweet or mention another user by typing “@username” as well as send direct messages to another used by typing “DM@username” please note that you can ONLY send a direct message to someone that is currently following you and you are following them. You can tag your post into specific, searchable categories by typing in a hashtag (#) sign before your topic. For example #engineeringjobs When several people use a specific hashtag at once to share ideas with one another it is considered a “twitter chat” or “trending”
  • You want to make it easy for recruiters to find you on LinkedIn. In order to do this, you need to rank well in LinkedIn and to rank well you should focus on the following. Have a complete profile with information relevant to the person searching for you. Be active in groups that are relevant to the information on your profile. Stay heavily connected to the industry you are optimizing for. Make sure you have a headline that encourages people to view your profile. Add a profile picture. If you don’t have a profile picture, you can be perceived as not understanding how to use LinkedIn. It also can make you seem out-of-touch with current technology and trends or technically incapable of uploading a photo. Other users might perceive your profile as “fake” if there isn’t a photo showing a real person. Besides just how LinkedIn users may perceive you, not having a profile picture keeps your profile from being 100% complete according to LinkedIn’s criteria. Profiles that are 100% complete are more likely to show up higher in search results and give them an advantage over “incomplete” profiles. Furthermore, LinkedIn research indicates that profiles with pictures are SEVEN TIMES as likely to be viewed as those without photos. So I’ll say it again – Add a profile picture – it’s important! Make sure you dress appropriate in your photo. Wear an outfit that reflects the norms of the profession that you’re in. If you are coming up in searches, but people don’t click on your profile link – then LinkedIn will think your profile is less relevant and rank you lower in future searches. Focus on the first things people see when they click on your profile – your photo and headline. These things should be professional, realistic and interesting enough that someone is compelled to click on your profile. Your photo should be professional and relevant to your industry, but it doesn’t have to be a professional headshot. You want it to show you’re a ‘real person’ who’s serious about getting a job. The headline section is your opportunity to sell yourself, so make sure you aren’t using the same phrases as everyone else such as “PM Seeking Immediate Employment”. Take time to develop a unique, specific and eye catching headline that will set you apart from other candidates. Your LinkedIn goal should be to connect with people in industries and at companies you want to work for – then to turn those connections into job opportunities and interviews.
  • While this social media platform is generally used for personal networking, you cannot deny the hundreds of brands and companies utilizing this platform to connect with candidates and consumers. So make it easy for recruiters to find you on Facebook and be impressed by what they find. Set up your privacy setting (which I will review in more detail) so that you can ensure what recruiters are seeing is clean and consistent with your online personal brand. Complete your about section. This is a common area Facebook users skip over – but it’s critical for your job search and career advancement. Filling out your About section should be no different than completing your LinkedIn profile or uploading your resume to Monster. Complete with all your professional information and link with as many names as you can – company name, high school, college, home locations to build your network and increase your likelihood of showing up in a search. Create lists for different types of people in your network to ensure you are sharing only the info those people would want to see. Examples – bar hopping, etc checking in, posting from a conference work onlyAs I mentioned, brands and companies – follow them to get insider’s view of working there, advice to getting hired, etc. You can’t control what your friends do on FB but be prepared. If you have an over posting friend – approve their posts before they go to their wall. Utilize privacy settings to manage to your needs Resist the temptation to over-share – people want to see real-life things, but they don’t need to know every day what you are having for breakfast…..and lunch…..and dinner. Keep in mind your audience and the image you are trying to portray ENGAGE with EMPLOYERS – this is an opportunity to get yourself noticed before you apply to their positions. Become a valuable contributor to their site and others will recognize your name when you apply.
  • Twitter is the only platform that (at this time) does not require you to use your legal name – it is a violation of the terms of service on FB or LinkedIn to create “fake profiles” so use it to your advantage. If you want to tweet a lot about personal things, rant or non-careers related information, consider creating a personal and professional twitter account. Same goes here – complete your about section with information from your resume, include a LI link or your personal web adddressFollow companies for get insider’s view of working there, advice to getting hired, job opportunities, etc. Connect with recruiters on Twitter that work for the companies you are interested in Hashtags are great to use on Twitter, they help bring your tweets up in searches and connects you with trending stories and topics. However, too much hashtagging can make your tweet difficult to read and understand. So best used in moderation. ALWAYS check your hashtags before you use them too – you might be surprised by what others are posting using that hashtagFollow handles that tweet out jobs specific to your industry or interestENGAGE with EMPLOYERS – this is an opportunity to get yourself noticed before you apply to their positions. Become a valuable contributor to their site and others will recognize your name when you apply.
