Winning Job Search Tips
So, today’s question is. “How do I expand my social media presence?”
Social media is a new phenomenon. It’s only been around for the last 15 years or so. You need to embrace social media. You need to market yourself as an authority. It allows you, almost for free, to market, share, build content, make comments demonstrating what an authority, what a leader, you are. It provides you the opportunity to sell in front of a global audience or narrow it down to a specific audience. I would suggest as a career management expert and a fanatic on LinkedIn and Facebook and Twitter that you use all those platforms.
If you’re in career transition, I would suggest that as an expert, you be on LinkedIn, a minimum of five hours a day. Now a lot of people say, ‘Oh my gosh, I can’t be on LinkedIn for five hours a day!’ You would be surprised that you can find your boss or your next boss at the companies you want to go and work for, because you must have employers that you’ve held in high esteem over many years where you would like to go and work. So why don’t you go on the hunt? Why don’t you share, why don’t you comment on other people’s blogs?
Social Media Platforms
So as an expert, I will suggest you’ll definitely be on LinkedIn, but make sure you have a fully complete profile with your picture and customize your LinkedIn URL and have recommendations. Don’t cheat on LinkedIn. You need to have a full profile. On Facebook, it’s becoming more business-oriented. I’ve watched the transition of Facebook from more of a teenager hangout with them posting their pictures to a more businesslike environment. A lot of companies now have a large presence on Facebook. Additionally, if you’re in sales or marketing, you have to be on Twitter. It’s a sales & marketing platform. You never know who’s going to find you. You never know that the next phone call could come as a result of your recent post on LinkedIn, Twitter, or Facebook.
