Networking and Social Media

“Gives professionals a fun and completely different way to Network. The site translates offline networking events into an efficient online networking experience to help you meet new people and build relevant relationships to advance your career.

Helps you create and expand your professional network.” (


Networking and Social Media

Network Roulette

“After answering two simple questions, You’re randomly matched for a three minute conversation to determine if the person on the other side can help your network. After the networking session, you can then choose who to follow up with through your network dashboard. It uses text-based communication, like Gchat or AOL IM.” (


Networking and Social Media

  • Let your friends and followers know: your are looking for a job, what type, and your skills.
  • Twitter and LinkedIn look up the profile of the hiring manager and tailor your cover letter to their needs and desires
  • You can add your Twitter handle or LinkedIn profile URL to your contact information.

Networking and Social Media

  • Networking
  • With all the different Social Media sites that we use, a LinkedIn can be created so that a hiring manager will see what you want them to see, when googling you for a prospective employment opportunity. Rather than “finding something” that would jeopardize your opportunity for employment.

2011Graduate: Job Seeking Interview

When I first graduated with my associates in business administration I was looking for employment but I decided to go back to school and took on another major. I finished my last class in December. Started looking for work in January and landed two jobs on February 21.When I first graduated in May it was very hard. I looked for work but, did not even get one interview. I noticed that they are looking for experience people with education. I Did have some background in administration but, the market was slow. I decided to get my diploma in medical assistant so that i will have the option in either field or combine them as in "Medical Office Administration". Now I think the jobs are coming back slowly but, last year was the most hardest times. The recession has caused many graduates to pursue other avenues. For example, I have my business degree and a Medical Assistant Diploma but, I landed a job in the Office Administration field and as Sales Associate at a major home and office improvement store. I could not find a position in the medical because they want highly qualified individuals with degrees. I believe throughout your job search you have to keep your options open. I learned that the hard way although, was very lucky to land two position even though they are two totally different.
