I Think, Therefore I Blog

Are You Social Enough?

USNews Cover I was recently interviewed regarding Social Media/Job Search by U.S. News and World Report for the How To Make Money Now 2013 Edition.  One observation I shared was on how differently job seekers view Social Media than non-job seekers. 

An obvious fact, I know.  But in today’s economy, do you know when you might be starting a job search?  It’s usually a good idea to manage your Social Media profile before this happens.  Certainly, you don’t have to put the effort into overdrive until necessary, but establishing a professional presence early in the game is a good strategy.  I have many other tips on this within the Social Media subject on this blog if you’re looking for more advice on the topic.

Other tips you may need to think about are also included in the U.S. News article.

  1. Agreed, it’s always a good idea to stay on top of your social media accounts during a job search or when one is approaching. I’d like to think that finding a balance between personal and professional is the key to social media anyway, but if you’re looking for a job then it’s better to err on the side of caution.

    P.S. – Tried reading your article from the snapshot above but it’s a little too difficult without squinting! Perhaps edit with a better scan? 🙂

    • I’ll have to get around to scanning, instead of a pic. Just a few quotes really. No biggie. Thanks for the comments!
