Use your social media accounts to your advantage!

If you’re looking for a job, common sense tells you not to post the pictures from your night out on LinkedIn. You’ve surely heard all of the ways you can limit your social media presence to attract employers, but did you know that you can use social media to your advantage? This week we’re discussing the rapidly evolving world of social media, and what it means for your job hunt.

Showcase Your Technological Knowledge

Social media proves that you care about your web presence and your comfortable using technology. As companies continue to expand their web presence, they’re becoming increasingly more interested in candidates with a vast knowledge of the latest technology. Pinterest may be only a hobby of yours, but it can help you create a visual resume to impress employers with.

Your Activity Proves Your Interest

Maintaining a blog and commenting on related posts proves that you have a true interest in your field. Employers want to know that you’re serious about the position and interested in learning more. A recreational, or professional blog related to the field proves your interest.

Get the Inside Scoop

Chances are that the company you’re applying to already has a prominent web presence. Use this to your advantage and learn more about the corporate culture. Their Facebook page, Instagram, and even LinkedIn may give you some insight towards day to day operations.
