#PayChat: Job Hunting and Social Media
Today a social media presence is required to land a job, but where do you begin? How do you use social media to get hired? Please join us this Wednesday, February 26th at 10:30 A.M. (PST) to discuss this topic and learn how to make the most of your job search by using social media in our monthly twitter chat, #PayChat.
We’ll talk about how various social networks such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter work and what strategies you can employ to standout amongst the crowd to land your dream job. We’ll also discuss personal branding, what this means, and the important role this plays in your job search.
During this 30-minute chat we’ll address the following questions:
- On which social networks should job seekers spend their time looking for work?
- What hashtags should job seekers follow on Twitter?
- What makes a candidate standout? What information are recruiters looking for in a potential candidates social media profile?
- How do you use social networks to establish a personal brand?
- How do you use social media to tell your professional story?
