Have you ever “googled” your name?
                                     Howmanyofme.com
                            4 people out 313 million in the USA are
                                   named Colleen LaRose


TERRORIST?
What are people saying about you? If
you do not control your image, you can
lose control of it!
Social Media Defined
• CREATE - Social media (SM) describes a variety of internet
  based applications that allow for making contributions,
  creating and exchanging user-generated content.
• DISCUSS - SM fosters interactive dialogue, allowing people to
  share information. (2.0). Contrasts with the editorially
  controlled style of old media
• BUILD RELATIONSHIPS - SM platforms encourage group
  conversation and group contributions.
  Strengthens ties/Draws out formerly weak relationships.
How does this change things?

  Due to the ubiquitously accessible nature of online
social networking, the way organizations, communities,
and individuals communicate has changed dramatically.

             Now, more than ever,
             individuals as well as
                 organizations
          have images to be controlled.
What is Social Media?

It’s a listening and an interpersonal communication tool…
• Networking
• Introductions
• Information sharing
• Reviews/opinions
• Entertainment/multimedia
• Collaboration
The common characteristics
        of social media are:
• Accelerates Communication and Collaboration
  (networks, employees, customers, partners)
• User generated “Social” Content (capture and share
  expertise and best practices – efficient and transparent)
• Enables New Business Insights (analyze social data
  to understand business situations and improve
  decision-making)
Who is using Social Media
• Professionals in the same industry (best practices,
  commiserate, etc)
• Professionals sharing across different industries
  (economic development/workforce
  development/employers/educators)
• Those wanting to learn/explore other industries
• Those looking for people with skills they need to fill
  in for their project/staff
Advantages to being the “odd ball”

• Experts are willing to “teach you”
• You bring new eyes to their old problems
• You realize you know more than you thought you
  did
• You make connections that put you way ahead
  of others in your industry
• You learn new methods that can be applied in
  your industry
EXAMPLE: Collaborating with
    Economic Development Folks
• Planning basics are the same
• Forces WD to think about other considerations
  (infrastructure, transportation, housing)
• WD is more more about partnering
• ED WANTS input from WD
• WD is the number one issue for ED!

Cycle of growing online dialogue

                             Conversation
    Content You Create                      Community

        Curious Inquiry
START                                        Consistent
HERE          Collective                     Communication
              Contribution
                               Conversion
                 You are responsible for keeping the
                 conversation interesting and alive.
Now that you understand the
    power of online dialogue….

• Consider adding a community feature to your
  website!
• Who would you invite to your community?
• How would this change the dynamics of your
  organization?
What social media is not


• It is not a bully pulpit or bullhorn…
• It is not static, one way information
Do’s and Don’ts of engaging online

• 5%
• 95%
• Think of it as a cocktail party online….

Using Social Media and Online Technologies in the Public Workforce System
Some of the conversations you are missing!
 Should there be a national DOL job bank? Why did DOL close
 America’s Job Bank? (22 comments)
 Should volunteer opportunities be offered to those on
 unemployment as a way to gain new skills? (21 comments)
 How do we engage more employers to talk with us so that the
 system trains to fit their exact needs? (27 comments)
 Should entrepreneurship be taught to people on unemployment as
 a marketable skill? (23 comments)
 If you were King for the day” what is the one thing you
 would mandate as a change to improve the public
 workforce system? (27 comments)
 Should/will community colleges be the new
 One Stop Career Centers? (23 comments)
My favorite comment so far…
Ken Biddick • I love this group, and Colleen and big thank you for it's creation. One of the best things any of us can do
is be persistent with our ideas in moving workforce sustainability forward. I can only speak to my experience over the
last fifteen or so years chairing two WIB committees that until recently I did not think much would ever be
accomplished. This group provides something that gives me and I hope others the realization that we can make
a difference by sharing ideas and promoting a basic theme in all of our respective WIBs.
My current committee consists of all the respective folks, agencies, public and private training/education organizations,
and union reps mentioned in this discussion. I have been able to bring to this group much of what this LinkedIn group
discusses so we can continue to create value throughout the workforce sustainability chain. My committees main theme
is to connect the dots for businesses and our citizens to thrive. It took some time to get everyone to recognize that the
WIB is basically a concierge service, we connect needs to providers that can fulfill that request. We also have learned
that the chain doesn't start at the one-stop, which was the old way of thinking. Sustainability has two basic paths, the
current needs of those who require economic assistance (this means businesses seeking workers and workers seeking
a means to generate income) and the longterm view of developing our citizens to be self sustaining. This longterm path
begins before middle school and requires the kind of collaboration discussed here. It is a long road to travel but had I
started this fifteen years ago I think we would have the beginnings of a working system.

 This LinkedIn group has provided ideas and information to help move the process
 along much faster than I imagined it would. I firmly believe as we debate here we
 can develop what could be the national model of what WIBs do and how we connect
 economic activity to education and the development of our citizens as innovators of
 sustained economic activity.
BTW, I also believe that the WIB is, as Kevin Kline said in the movie Dave, a temp job, since our
ultimate goal is to build the longterm model that in one to two generations should eliminate the
current short term needs.
Why you need social networking

• Puts your ear to the ground.
• Makes you a thought leader
• Gives you an advance on internal and external
  public relations strategies
• Allows you to “soft-market:”
Establishing an Organizational
       Social Media Policy
Heldrich Report - http://bit.ly/zHS2AU
Social Media Today -100 social media policy examples:
  http://bit.ly/wQj3ZN
 1. Employees have no right to privacy with respect to social
  networking. “Employers reserve the right to monitor employee
  use of social media at work or on personal time at home”
  2. Employees “should be made aware that company policies on
  anti-harassment, ethics and company loyalty extend to all forms
  of communication.
What jobseekers should know
• Word clouds (www.wordle.net)
• Look for work (signal, research companies/employees)
• Use Glassdoor.com to research companies
• Be found (300 views to get one offer)
• Making connections (3000 lifetime invitations) – use
  your group connections to add connections
• Online resume…different than print (4 word key phrase)
• Where to show contact information
• The power is in the GROUPS! Starting a group is
  important!
Examples of recruiters using
          social media
• Linked In as a recruiting tool
• Linked In SIGNAL to find out what companies
  are looking for.
• Twitter as a listening device
  (search.twitter.net, #, socialoomph)
• Facebook to look for behavior
When all else fails –
    Helping people create a Job
• Too few jobs are leaving some people lost
• Internet and social media is making it easier to
  start new enterprises
• Crowdfunding as a way to raise capital:
  "JOBS" (Jumpstart our business start-ups).
  Some crowdfunding sites they may want to
  visit are www.kickstarter.com,
  www.indigogo.com, and www.fundly.com

(27 comments) Should/will community colleges be the new One Stop Career Centers? (23 comments)
  • 28. My favorite comment so far… Ken Biddick • I love this group, and Colleen and big thank you for it's creation. One of the best things any of us can do is be persistent with our ideas in moving workforce sustainability forward. I can only speak to my experience over the last fifteen or so years chairing two WIB committees that until recently I did not think much would ever be accomplished. This group provides something that gives me and I hope others the realization that we can make a difference by sharing ideas and promoting a basic theme in all of our respective WIBs. My current committee consists of all the respective folks, agencies, public and private training/education organizations, and union reps mentioned in this discussion. I have been able to bring to this group much of what this LinkedIn group discusses so we can continue to create value throughout the workforce sustainability chain. My committees main theme is to connect the dots for businesses and our citizens to thrive. It took some time to get everyone to recognize that the WIB is basically a concierge service, we connect needs to providers that can fulfill that request. We also have learned that the chain doesn't start at the one-stop, which was the old way of thinking. Sustainability has two basic paths, the current needs of those who require economic assistance (this means businesses seeking workers and workers seeking a means to generate income) and the longterm view of developing our citizens to be self sustaining. This longterm path begins before middle school and requires the kind of collaboration discussed here. It is a long road to travel but had I started this fifteen years ago I think we would have the beginnings of a working system. This LinkedIn group has provided ideas and information to help move the process along much faster than I imagined it would. I firmly believe as we debate here we can develop what could be the national model of what WIBs do and how we connect economic activity to education and the development of our citizens as innovators of sustained economic activity. BTW, I also believe that the WIB is, as Kevin Kline said in the movie Dave, a temp job, since our ultimate goal is to build the longterm model that in one to two generations should eliminate the current short term needs.
  • 29. Why you need social networking • Puts your ear to the ground. • Makes you a thought leader • Gives you an advance on internal and external public relations strategies • Allows you to “soft-market:”
  • 30. Establishing an Organizational Social Media Policy Heldrich Report - http://bit.ly/zHS2AU Social Media Today -100 social media policy examples: http://bit.ly/wQj3ZN 1. Employees have no right to privacy with respect to social networking. “Employers reserve the right to monitor employee use of social media at work or on personal time at home” 2. Employees “should be made aware that company policies on anti-harassment, ethics and company loyalty extend to all forms of communication.
  • 31. What jobseekers should know • Word clouds (www.wordle.net) • Look for work (signal, research companies/employees) • Use Glassdoor.com to research companies • Be found (300 views to get one offer) • Making connections (3000 lifetime invitations) – use your group connections to add connections • Online resume…different than print (4 word key phrase) • Where to show contact information • The power is in the GROUPS! Starting a group is important!
  • 32. Examples of recruiters using social media • Linked In as a recruiting tool • Linked In SIGNAL to find out what companies are looking for. • Twitter as a listening device (search.twitter.net, #, socialoomph) • Facebook to look for behavior
