The unemployment statistics are disconcerting and unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be getting easier for recent grads and those looking for a job or career change. Could social media be a solution? According to recent studies by executive research firms, social media sites have become platforms for facilitating connections, demonstrating passions and interests, and ultimately landing a job.
To help navigate the process, Job Searching with Social Media For Dummies covers all of the latest and most popular social media sites, such as Google, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, ZoomInfo, and more. It provides in-depth instruction on how to create effective online profiles and resumes to sell your strengths, maintain your online reputation, and understand electronic etiquette. You’ll also get advice on:
- Using the power of personal branding and building your brand online
- Avoiding common pitfalls (like jumping into filling out a social media profile without a strategy)
- Getting to know Twitter, the only real-time job board with literally thousands of jobs posted daily
- Using social media sites to uncover opportunities in the "hidden job market" ahead of the competition
If you're a recent graduate, changing careers, or have been away from the job-search scene for a while, turn to the trusted guidance and expert insight of Job Searching with Social Media For Dummies.
