How to Use Social Media to Find a Job

These days it seems as if you don’t exist online, you don’t exist.  This can be very true when you’re looking for a job.  This article lays out four tips on how to use social media to land your dream job.  

I particularly like the fourth piece of advice…

Create a list of companies you want to work for and interact!

The best way to land a job using social media is to follow companies you’d love to work for. After you create a list of potential employers, start engaging with their content.

Ask employers about their company, retweet their content, and connect with employees who work there. You can also try sparking valuable conversations with these employers and professionals as well. For example, don’t say, “I love your company! Are you hiring?”. Instead, say something like, “I really like what your company does! Do you have a blog I can read?” This is a thoughtful way to show employers you’re genuinely interested in their company.

I work with a coaching company called CareerHMO.  We offer similar advice.  We advise our coaching clients to create a bucket list of companies where they would like to work.  The secret is to interact with your target companies is a manner that demonstrates that you are thoughtful, informed professional.
