Using Social Media to Power Your Job Search

Social media has become an important part of our everyday lives. We use Facebook to connect to friends and share thoughts and images. We use LinkedIn to grow our professional network. And we use a host of other social media platforms to either express ourselves or connect to others. However, social media can play a huge part in your job search.

You can utilize Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to follow company pages and find out the latest news on them. Using these social media platforms for job postings is a good idea and can help you find something up your alley. Type in search terms like ‘sales rep jobs Toronto’ in LinkedIn. Also, look within your network and find out who is hiring–sometimes a company won’t post a job but someone will in order to find someone for that position leveraging their network. It may also be a good idea to create a post or Message your connections noting that you are on a job hunt (provided that your company knows that fact or you currently don’t have a job.)

Social media is provide you an amazing array for awesome job research and job search oporir opportunities. You just need to find new and interesting ways to use it in order to find the job you want!
