Social Networking: Maximize Your Search!
An integral part of a successful job search is maximizing social networking sites. Many employers access these sites for candidates. Your LinkedIn profile should be updated and professional. Key words are how employers find candidates. If you are looking for a position in a specific practice area or one that requires a certain skill set, make sure that you use the same key words used by employers in that industry or practice area. When the employer sources candidates, the best match will be through these key words.
Additionally, employers will find your page on all of the social networking sites when they determine that they have an interest in you as a candidate. Manage your Facebook page and other similar pages by reviewing the content from the employers prospective. Is your image the one that they would like to have seen by their customers or clients? Remember that customers and clients are both external and internal.
