If you are like most people you are likely involved with social media and if you are looking for a job, then you can use this to your advantage. After all, think of all the contacts that you have with the various social media outlets you use.
You can easily let all your social media connections know that you are looking for a job with a quick post or two. While none of your contacts may necessarily have a job to offer you, they may know someone that you don’t who is looking to hire. If they do, they will likely pass your information on to their contact and before you know it you are getting an unexpected call for an interview.
Many social media sites even make it possible to post links as part of a comment. You can take advantage of this and post your resume as a link. Of course you will want to let everyone know what you are doing and again, you never know who will be hiring either in your network or an outside source of your network.
There are also social media sites that are dedicated to making business contacts. These kinds of social media sites are a must to be involved in whether you are currently looking for work or not. You never know when you might find yourself in the hunt for a new job and having business contacts to turn to within your social media network never hurts.
This is a day and age where connections are made online and this is evident with the explosion of social media. If you are looking for a job or even just curious about what is out there, give your social media contacts a shot. You just might be surprised at what you find.
