  • Keep your profiles clean.
  • Show some personality.
  • Spread yourself around.
  • Target your message.
  • Connect with the company you want to work for.

Now, by title alone, you can probably get a good feel for what each of these suggests. But I highly recommend you check out the entire article for some very interesting insight. These are some great best practices that I encourage my Career Coaching clients to embrace.

    Great point! Social media can really help people in there careers…. or hurt them. This article really lays out a great strategy to leverage the power of social media. Don’t forget to clean up your personal account though. Many hiring managers will check out candidates profiles to get a better understanding of who they are about to hire. Make them smile, not frown.

    Thanks again!
