Social Media

Finding a job is all about connecting with people, to get leads on jobs that may not have even been advertised yet or maybe to have someone you know to recommend you to an employer. Of course, none of this happens unless you are talking to people, this is where social media becomes very valuable. So if you are not using social media you are at a competitive disadvantage so you might want to sign up and start making connections. Being able to use social media has changed over time from a casual pastime to an essential job skill. The good news is, it's an easy skill to learn.

There are many very popular social media sites used today but Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin are likely still the most popular. So if you haven't created an account yet, you might want to click on each of the links below to get started.

If you are not sure how to use the social media websites above ask a friend to show you or go to www.youtube.com and search for "How to use Facebook" or "How to use Twitter" or "How to use Linkedin" and you will see many short videos showing how to use them.
