    5 Tips for Social Media Job Search

    Below are 5 tips for landing your next job using social media:

    1. Keep Your Profiles Clean…
    2. …But Show Some Personality
    3. Spread Yourself Around
    4. Target Your Message
    5. Connect With the Company You Want to Work For

    In this article from Mashable, it explains, “A recent study suggests that nearly 90% of companies will use networks like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter for recruiting, and that nearly 80% will review a candidate’s online presence and behavior before making a hiring decision.”

    It’s important to establish and build your online presence in advance.

    Do you have any tips to add to the list?

    Another thing to consider to help you stand out from the crowd is to spruce up your Facebook and LinkedIn profiles with the Brazen Careerist App.

    You link the Facebook app to your profile and then link it to your LinkedIn and it assembles an infographic style resume that is very appealing to the eye. For example, it gives you a map of your connections and a list of keyword-friendly skills to add to your resume and online profiles. It also gives you badges for things you have accomplished, similar to Foursquare and other social network badges. This creates a visual to go along with your skills and make you more memorable to prospective employers.

    Has anyone checked out the Brazen Careerist App on Facebook yet? If so, what do you think of it?
