How to get a Job in Social Networks
Getting a job through Social Network such as Facebook sounds like a great idea. Job searching from the comfort of your own home instead of pounding the streets! In reality, itâ€™s not as simple as it seems and there are a few things to think about if youâ€™re going to make social networking sites part of your job search.
Donâ€™t forget that people can see all our status updates, photos, videos and groups unless our profiles are locked. If you contact potential employers through your social network, youâ€™re more or less inviting them to have a look at it.
So if you want to make a good impression, itâ€™s time to remove the inappropriate social network pictures and to stop using the network to moan about your current employer.
Even if you donâ€™t want a new job right at this moment, itâ€™s worth changing your online habits anyway if you will potentially be job hunting in the future and your current employer wouldnâ€™t be impressed if they checked out your Social Network right now. That said, itâ€™s just as possible to make a positive impression online as it is to leave a negative one.
As open and accessible as social network sites are, potential employers arenâ€™t going to come running just because we tweet, â€œIâ€™m looking 4 a jobâ€. We have to find them, because itâ€™s unlikely that theyâ€™ll find us. Social Network has various types of applications you can use to seek out potential employers and useful contacts.
Once youâ€™ve found contacts that could be beneficial, itâ€™s important to build up an online relationship with the relevant employers so that even if they donâ€™t know of anything for you straight away, theyâ€™ll remember you if something comes up further down the line. Speak with them about your job search, your skills and your industry of choice. Use social network to build up your experience and skills set offline.
So yes, social network is useful, but integrate it with both offline and other online strategies. It takes some thought and effort to successfully incorporate social network into your job search -but it can be a lot of fun as well!
