A short video recorded by Ian Pettigrew (@KingfisherCoach) at last week’s Social Media Surgery Manchester, the title of which was ‘Social media for recruitment: Getting a job through Twitter or Linkedin or Facebook’. Ian asked for the one piece of advice that I would give to a job seeker using social media. Before you watch, I’d like to apologise for 3 things:
- The “I’d…erm…” at the start of the vid
- The horrendous black waiter’s shirt I was wearing
- The terrible hair do
This was taken after a long day at work, upon which I blame these 3 things.
You can still access the live blog from the evening and if you are a job seeker you may wish to take a read of my social media surgery take away, which offers some pointers on the effective use of social media in your job search. Keep an eye on my Twitter account (@OnlineAStevens) or drop me an invite on Linkedin if you would like to know more about the next event. The likely topic of discussion will be content generation for social media and reporting stats accurately.
