4 ways to use Twitter to find a job
Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Dan Finnigan loves Twitter. As the CEO of Jobvite, a six-year-old company in Burlingame, CA, he sells software that enables companies to identify and source job candidates through their employees' social networks. Jobvite works through Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, so those social media sites are essential to Finnigan's business. But he also strongly believes that Twitter is gaining on LinkedIn as a great tool for finding employment. Part of his conviction stems from a yearly survey Jobvite does that polls Americans about how they use social networks in their job searches. More

The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

The employability gap
The Vancouver Sun    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Lee McCollum had a basic supply-and-demand conundrum. As an executive at Progress Energy (now Duke Energy) in North Carolina, he had a growing demand for skilled-trades workers, and a visibly diminishing supply. So he did what any enterprising business leader would do: He went out and proactively started creating a more abundant supply. "Basically I go out to high schools and community colleges and place two students at every power plant," says the North Carolina executive, describing his Power Careers program. "The student gets sponsored, and if they're selected we do a background check... and they end up getting a job for $10,000 a year while they're in school. And when they graduate, there's usually a job waiting for them." More

How to develop a career path in occupational health
Personnel Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Career pathways are often considered linear — you do a job for a year then progress upwards or perhaps laterally to broaden your skill set and knowledge base. But sometimes life gets in the way and you just need to take your time; however, there is still opportunity to grow. Progressing your career does need some planning and opportunity, but the impact of the economy is seriously compromising many occupational health professionals' career paths. The most recent review of the U.K. occupational health market indicates a 3 per cent decline in 2011 in the provision of OH (occupational health) in the U.K. In the same report, it was estimated that, by 2011, 53 per cent of all U.K. OH needs had been outsourced, which means that many practitioners are now working independently or as part of a sizeable remote-based organisation.

Social media useful to help find work
The Sacramento Bee    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Social media have become an increasingly important tool in a job seeker's arsenal. More than ever, your online profile is a gateway to the next job lead or interview. How you maintain your social media profile could be the difference between landing the job or watching opportunities pass you by. New survey results released by careers site Jobvite are yet another indicator of social media's influence on the job search. More job seekers are jumping onto Twitter and LinkedIn to find work, according to Jobvite analysts. And with Facebook's recent launch of its new social jobs application, job seekers' social media options continue to grow. More

5 types of job interviews
Women 24    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
We all know how stressful a job interview can be — whether it's your first time, or the hundredth one you're attending. So, to help you through the process, we've come up with a list of different interview types that you may encounter. Depending on the level of the role you are interviewing for and the types of requirements needed for a particular role, these are some interviews you may experience. Employers are starting the interview process more and more these days with a phone interview even prior to the face-to-face interview. Time considerations and travel costs have all lead to an increase in the number of phone interviews being conducted in the earliest stages and even into later stages if there are important stake holders that are not located in the same geography as the candidate.

Five strange but effective job applications
Maclean's    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A chocolate cake. A tea set. A Lego mosaic. These are just a few of the stand-out job applications that have landed on the desks of recruiters at Vancouver-based social media company HootSuite. Applying for a new job is daunting. Throw in a dour economy and a lacklustre job market and it's enough to make any recent grad want to throw in the towel. To get the attention of some of the most popular companies out there, it takes creativity, says Ambrosia Humphrey, HootSuite's director of human resources. The cake, the tea set and the Lego mosaic "showed that the candidates were thinking outside of the box," she says, "and all of those positions called for something like that." Not every company will appreciate a Lego mosaic, but that's where Humphrey's other advice comes into play. "Not tailoring your application is the biggest mistake we come across," she says. More
