Back before the digital age it was Dale Carnegie and Toastmasters.  While those are both still very valuable resources, the digital environment adds a slightly different nuance to it.  That's why I think this compilation of resources is valuable.

Job Seekers: How to Use Pintrest to Promote Your Brand

Job Seekers: How to Use Pintrest to Promote Your Brand | Technology & Social Media | Scoop.it

"Students need to think of their majors in graphics and focus on pictures that might represent what they are interested in, projects they have completed and/or some of the activities or organizations they are involved in."

 

"It is also important to write a little something about each picture that you post to give a description, which will help the viewer to have a better understanding of how this pictures relates to them professionally."

 

Here are some of the tips on how to use Pinterest as a personal branding tool college students should consider:

 

1. Create resume boards on which they pin pictures related to their schooling and experiences.

 

2. Create portfolio boards with examples of their work, which is especially good for creative fields.

 

3. Pin a copy of their resume with text that says “please share me.”

 

4. Create boards related to their interests to give more insight into them.

 

5. Place their Pinterest URLs on their job-search materials, including resumes, cover letters, e-mail signatures, profiles on LinkedIn, and more.
