Getting to Know You Better

Last week I had an interesting talk with Ramit and Matt in New York. At one point the conversation turned to Matt's site, and Ramit started asking him a few questions about it. Actually, it was more like an interrogation.

"Who is your average reader?"

"Someone who's looking for travel information."

How can you utilize #SocialMedia to find a job?

On Social Mediatrics

With the increase of Social Media over the years, professional networking has become important and it is the best way a person can find opportunities or land at a job. With Economic depression across the world, people think twice to leave a job or be worried to get slashed from a company as Blackberry announced recently. Thus with Social Media on the rise and present everywhere, people can utilize their skills on different Social Media Networks or design a creative resume to get noticed by employers. One of the examples of a creative resume was done by Eric Gandhi where he made Google Themed Resume on LinkedIn. It created a buzz in the Internet world and was noticed by Google which landed him to a job interview.

While some might not be as creative as him or think it is way too much, there are other ways which you can wear your tie neatly and polish your shoes and a potential employer can hire you through a Social Media network. The number of employers hiring people through social media has been increasing every year.

According to the survey in 2012, 92% of companies have used some form of social media network to find talented professionals for hire. 7 out of 10 employers successfully hired these candidates through social media. And a recent Social Recruiting Survey conducted by Jobvite, 94% of the HR and Recruiters feel that Linkedin is the best platform to find potential employees. Thus, it is easier for a job seeker to find a job and get noticed than it was earlier.
