Job Seekers Use 5 Social Media Tips to Help Their Personal Brand

Job Seekers Use 5 Social Media Tips to Help Their Personal Brand | Social Media School | Scoop.it

"Any modern job search requires more than just a resume and portfolio."

 

"Here are five...tips... job seekers should consider when embarking on their job search."

 

**Use keywords which describe you

**Google yourself, your brand is what the internet says

**Seek out and engage with potential employers

**Use professional language, in a social fashion

**Be human and demonstrate your soft skills

 

http://bostinno.com/2012/12/08/5-essential-social-media-tips-for-your-job-hunt/

 

I will add a sixth one to the list which has to do with your personal brand.

 

**Step back and consider how your social media activities reflect the skills and capabilities on your resume.

 

Soft skills are in demand as you read articles around what companies are looking to hire. What better place than social media to demonstrate your soft skills, such as creativity, communication skills, work independently, multi-task, organized, or self-starter. These are only ideas, what are your key words?

 

If you compare your keyword list, can you see these keywords in the images, words and structure of your social sites, or are they full of what you did and what you ate.

 

In the current job hunt, hiring managers and HR departments will use search engines to review your personal brand. Make sure what they see is what you want, not what "the internet says about you".

Vetida Namprasert's curator insight, August 4, 2013 7:06 AM

I found this artical really useful. As we can see, this generation is all about internet, online and social media. People tend to consume social media a lot more than before. As the result, a company can use a social media to attact more customer and spread out their brand to the community easily and able to entire straight through their target market. Social media strategy is integrated and by using the knowladge of social media strategy can helps a company to be succesful in their marketing activity.

Maybelle O'Connell's comment, August 19, 2013 7:27 PM
It is important that marketers use social media strategically because when social media social is not integrated with the firm’s strategy, the effectiveness and efficiency of social media will suffer. People use social media to interact with others and through the integration of social media within a company they will be able to communicate with their target audience as well as spread their brand to a larger community.
Aimie White 1085804's comment, August 20, 2013 6:44 AM
This article is good in that it highlights the need to brands to collect information from consumers. The use of social media from what I have seen is that the attract consumers with an incentive such as "like us on facebook" to enter competitions or such and then all they do is throw advertising at them which tends to get ignored. It would be interesting to see how effective this. Social media should be used in the true meaning od integrated marketing communications, to gather information from consumers not throw more useless information at them.
