Social media could help your job search
UNDATED (WKRC) -- Social media could be a great way to help you out when looking for a job.
One way social media can aid in the job hunt is through blogging. Blogging once or twice a week about the industry you want to go in can help increase your knowledge of that industry. Employers can see your credibility for themselves.
Michelle Bramer, a marketing and PR manager for online advertising firm eZanga.com, says blogs are an excellent resource for job candidates looking for new opportunities. Linking back to your blog while posting on other sites can lead recruiters to you.
Social media use also shows employers that you're not afraid of technology and that you're willing to learn new skills.
"You don't have to be an expert, but having a social media presence shows you care about your professional reputation and you're comfortable using technology," says Brie Weiler Reynolds, director of online content at FlexJobs.
Social media can also help you learn about a company's culture. Companies' social media accounts are a great way to learn about the culture, clients and work.
