Lansing State Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Navigating the new social media tools that can be used for the job hunt can seem overwhelming. Luckily, some of the younger folks at Capital Area Michigan Works have kept me in the loop. One of the newest social media platforms, Pinterest, is a visual bookmarking social website. You 'pin' images you want to save or share onto virtual pinboards. Users can repin images from other users and comment on the images as well. Pinterest may have started out as a way to save and share recipes and trends as a hobby, but it's become an integral tool in the job search. Below are a few tips for utilizing Pinterest for the job hunt. More

Resources to aid your job search
MBA Guide Online    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
On its own, finding a job is a full-time job. And according to MBA Guide Online, having an error-proof résumé, an attention-grabbing cover letter and dressing well for the interview still does not mean you will be awarded the job. Recessions and times of high unemployment mean that there are hundreds of applicants for almost any open position, MBA Guide Online says. This makes landing the job more difficult than ever. Employers can hire a more qualified applicant for less pay than they might be able to in a better economy. Still, MBA Guide says there are plenty of information online to ensure you have the best shot at being hired. Check out their resources here. More

Online resourcing social jobs app
Bdaily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As the new Social Jobs Partnership Application was launched in America last month Facebook is being touted as the next online recruitment tool. There has been speculation as to whether the app provides enough detail and result breakdown to perform an accurate job vacancy search. As well as this, when a Social Jobs App user does find an interesting position, they are simply directed to the recruiter site to continue with the application. Facebook is not the first to think about harnessing the power of its own platform to drive employment opportunities. Companies like Monster, Work4Labs and Jobvite have created plug-ins for businesses to advertise their jobs to the Facebook audience. More

Most surprising way to land a new job?
AOL Jobs    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Have you ever noticed that the moment you stop looking for something, you find it? Your keys, your phone, the elusive shopping-list item at your local grocer, or even the love of your life. Sometimes, they seemingly appear out of nowhere at the moment you stop the search itself. Of course, this applies to the search for a new job as well. There's a familiar saying that goes, 'Dance like no one is watching and sing like no one is listening.' Most people are fairly confident when they don't perceive that an audience is judging them, and that confidence is quite attractive. You can use this same mentality for your job search (or non-job search, if you will) by remembering these few suggestions. More

Mashable    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
No matter where you are in your career — unemployed, actively job searching, happily employed, or anywhere in-between — networking is key in moving forward in your career. In fact, 65 per cent to 85 per cent of all jobs are found as a result of networking. Networking during the holidays is just as important as any other time of year. I would even suggest that there are more opportunities to network during the holidays. If you ever needed a reason to connect with a job contact, here it is: Happy holidays! But there are a few rules for holiday networking that should be taken into account. Here are the dos and don'ts of holiday networking. More
