5 ways Facebook's social jobs app will impact the job search
The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Facebook's new Social Jobs App is a great idea, but job seekers shouldn't throw in the towel on their other search methods. Job seekers should be focused on more than job boards, they should be developing a personal brand and using social media to connect to other thought leaders. While job seekers should look at their Facebook profiles as extensions of their candidate brand, it's probably too soon to do all your searching from the Facebook platform. More

The renovation of a half-century old high school is nearly complete as the Calgary Board of Education begins to remodel how it offers career and technology training to its students. Instead of classrooms at the Lord Shaughnessy career and technology centre, there are industrial standard kitchens, welding and autobody shops, a salon and spa for students to train as hairdressers, and more. The renovation of the Lord Shaughnessy is part of a bigger package of work being done across the province to reshape the type of schooling available to students. More

The federal Human Resources department will step up enforcement of the Employment Insurance program, when new rules on job searches come into effect early next year, says the minister.

Fox Business    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The holiday season is often busy with parties and events to catch up with family and friends, but these gatherings can also be prime locations for job seekers to make connections and find a good lead. Events like company holiday parties, volunteering opportunities and networking events are opportune times for recent grads and current students to make personal connections with those in their field. Although some businesses are looking for temporary hires, job postings tend to dwindle during the holidays as companies focus on planning for the following year, says Kimberly Baker, career services manager at Bryant & Stratton College Online.

When students are learning about career development and social media, they need to know to be proactive if they want to increase their chances of post-graduate career success. In 2012, there are far too many university graduates annually for current students to put off thinking about their post-grad life until the day after their convocation.

5 social media tips for job-seekers
The Street    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
How can job-seekers stand out in such a competitive environment? Jobvite says that social networking sites are a huge hit with employers and employees (and job-hunters).

Twitter is now used as a job-hunting tool by 46 per cent of workers, as opposed to 37 per cent last year, and LinkedIn saw its adoption rate climb from 32 per cent to 41 per cent on a year-to-year basis.

Job recruiters turn to LinkedIn, social media startups
Bloomberg    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In his more than 15 years as a headhunter, Jeff Vijungco has tried Monster, Craigslist, CareerBuilder, and other online job boards. Lately the head of recruitment at Adobe Systems has scrapped most of them. "I think job postings are such old news," Vijungco says. "Social is the hot new industry." Recruiters are filling openings faster by relying on new tools that scour social networks and target workers who aren't necessarily looking for jobs. LinkedIn got into the field early, launching Recruiter in 2008. More
