How to use Social Media to find career opportunities

Alex Tabora

Social media today has grown to be one of the top channels for potential employment seekers. The key is not to mix your personal with your professional aspects. Refining your search results to your specific industry or field is one of the highest used methods to finding employment using social media. When compiling your search results on potential companies, it’s important to account for the small firms as well. Every company is a doorway to your success.

You can also utilize social media channels to connect with decision makers within the companies you’ve selected. For example, use LinkedIn to search for hiring managers at your dream job, find out what they are like, where they have worked, what kind of experience they have and build off of that for your potential interview. If you can establish a connection with your interviewer then you are sure to seal the deal.
