Benefits of Social Media

  • Methodically expanding the jobseekers network

  • A jobseeker’s network is most likely where they will find their next job.

  • Carefully and purposefully raising the jobseeker’s personal profile

  • If you aren’t online, no one will know you even exist.

  • Jobseekers can manage and protect their online reputation

  • What will I find when I “Google” your name?

How Recruiters are using Social Media

(1) Culture Fit - Are you likeable? The Hiring Manager / Recruiter is determining a jobseeker’s fit within their company – and the position.

(2) Personal Branding Inconsistencies - Are you authentic? Are you who you say you are? The warning signs during this critical stage are 99.9% self-inflicted.

(3) Written Communication Skills - Are you a communicator? You have all the time in the world to write a good cover letter, resume and LinkedIn profile.

How Recruiters are using Social Media

(4) Trending Health Issues - Are you dependable? This may be the least known factor of a recruiter’s check of your social media.

(5) Lifestyle Changes - Are you focused? Recruiters want to know that for at least two to three years, you will remain the person they hired you for – and that you’ll be able make this job your highest priority.

SummaryRecruiters use social media – for a lot more than you think, at a deeper level than most imagine. Jobseekers very seldom are given the opportunity to explain, clarify or retract anything they said on social media.

What do your social media accounts tell the world about you?
