How to Use Social Media Tools to Search the HIDDEN Job Market

How to Use Social Media Tools to Search the HIDDEN Job Market | The "M" Word - Being a Millennial | Scoop.it

"Networking online gives graduates access to an otherwise hidden job market. Maintaining a professional presence on LinkedIn, Twitter and facebook will give job seekers a major advantage."

 

 

The article reviews the main social tools and offers up numerous tips focused on "how" to set them up and use them on a daily basis for your job search. The main focus is on helping you find your dream job at the companies you have chosen to pursue.

 

1. LinkedIn

 

2. Twitter

 

3. Facebook

 

4. Blogs

 

5. YouTube

 

Recall the hidden job market is not really hidden. You are simply getting a jump start on any "potential jobs" companies are considering by tracking and observing what is being discussed via social media to help find your dream job. By asking the right types of questions and offering up ideas you can help companies "craft" a job which matches your skills and capabilities.

Make Your Social Media - Professional!

Make Your Social Media - Professional! | The "M" Word - Being a Millennial | Scoop.it

"Social media tools, like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, can be valuable resources in not only networking with people you already know, but also with expanding your network to others. The old adage about it’s not what you know, but who you know is alive and well in the world of work, so use social media and your connections creatively to find and secure a job."

 

"Social media, though, also has dangers for the young professional. Savvy young professionals know there are social media guidelines that must be followed...."

 

The article provides tips on how to review your social media to make sure it is professional by removing or hiding things you don't want others to locate. Also being prepared to respond when questions come up.

 

Yet it is also important to look on the positive side. As you search, do you find those things about you which help you rise above the noise in the minds of the hiring managers?

 

Here is another article which is a quick review of your on line brand using a Google search with a simple ranking of what you find. http://www.onlineidcalculator.com/step1.php

 

Self-branding is becoming as important as company branding these days. It is not all about avoiding the negative press, add some positive into the mix.
