How To Use The Social Media To Get A Job


When you’re fresh out of college or university, you might face the most challenging period of your life which may be getting a job (If you don’t want to be an entrepreneur).

You may have a limited list of contacts, and few recommendations from lecturer, professors friends or family. However, that background is not enough for you to land a good job, and you’re not really happy with the conditions for starting positions.
Well, its good you know that social media can help you get noticed as someone looking for a job. Though a lot of people turn to LinkedIn (a platform which is extremely important for your professional success where you meet professionals and like-minded people in your field). LinkedIn is a tool that every graduate is aware of, and it’s a pretty straightforward concept – you build the perfect profile, you start making contacts, and you apply for jobs using that online resume.

Let’s focus on how you can use other social media to make career prospects and get someone to hire you. So here is how to use the social media to look for a job and get someone to employ you:

1. Polish out your profiles: Before going any further, you really need to remove compromising content from your profiles. If you have shared photos of a crazy night out, it’s time to remove them from the eyes of the public. Make them completely private if you don’t want to delete them; even your friends shouldn’t have access to them. Your Facebook and Twitter profiles shouldn’t be blank, though; they need to reflect your interests and competence. Share some smart articles with your comments on them. Write about things related to the industry you’re about to become part of.

Think about it this way: if a potential employer lands at your profile, what do you want them to see? Put it on your profile or timeline



2. Spread the news: It’s totally okay to share a Facebook status update or a tweet that shows you’re looking for a job. There is nothing to be ashamed of: you just got your degree and you’re ready to put it to good use.
Think of a good update that won’t seem desperate. Tell your friends to share the status/tweet and recommend you to people they know. This is a great chance to get noticed but a lot of people shy away from it. I don’t see why I can’t share that on my wall but post other irrelevant things.
  


3. Develop your network of connections: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are mostly intended for building virtual friendships, but you shouldn’t ignore their professional networking potential. Discover the brands you would like to become part of. Follow their pages and try to understand their culture. If there is any open position in these companies, they will probably share the news via social media. Due to the fact that you’ve followed their updates and you’ve explored their recent campaigns, you will khow how well you would fit in the company’s culture.

Don’t limit your search to brands; you can add professional contacts, too! Try to develop a spontaneous connection by commenting on some of their posts without being too obvious. If you want recruiters to notice you, you need to look like an expert. However, it’s important not to appear desperate.

With the right approach, you’ll start making connections with the right people in no time. You have to make good impressions with your online presence! No time to spend chatting and watching videos online expecting a job to pop on your face; work make it come to you.
