The Job Search Strategy, Reconsidered

While monitoring a lot of chatter on Twitter recently regarding the usage by companies of social networking to fill jobs, something struck me that I had not processed previously: not everyone is doing it!
But what does this mean for you as a possible job candidate? For one, don’t exclusively use social networking to find your next position. Yes, social networking is important to get you in contact with the right person/people within organizations. However, you still need to continue to use more traditional job searching tools.

Social Media Strategy – Old Tools in an Evolving World

I recently listened to an ERE social media presentation which was presented by Penelope Trunk. I thought the vast majority of the presentation was excellent, with great insight and interesting thoughts on social media as a whole.

I always try to leave a presentation with one or two items that stand out and leave me with something to build off of. In this case, I walked away with two topics on which I did not agree with Penelope’s feedback. Now I hope to provide you with my thoughts on the issues.
