I was shocked.
I was in disbelief.
I gave a presentation on how to use social media for a job search yesterday. I explained HOW it get’s you job interviews faster. I explained how 80% of companies use it to find their next employee. I showed why job boards don’t work. And I still got this comment response to my question: Do You Feel this Info Will Help You Find a Job Sooner?
I’m not convinced
That’s fair…if you want to NEVER find a job.
I don’t care how old you are. Social Media is not about that. It’s a shift in the way we are communicating. Are you able and willing to adapt?
Guess what, employers want to hire people who are adaptable.
Using social media demonstrates this very ability.
If you are not convinced you should be using social media as the central hub of your job search, watch this video:
