Social media tools and and participation in online communities is rapidly becoming an important part of the job search process. But first, you have to know the mistakes job seekers make online and what you need to do to avoid making the same mistakes.
In this webinar, Social Media Job Search Expert Joshua Waldman will take you on a humorous odyssey of the 7 follies of online job searching. Joshua's 7 tips will help you network more professionally, develop a strong personal brand, and online "thought leadership".
Joshua will answer the following questions:
- Why should I even bother using social media for anything other than chatting with old high-school buds?
- This stuff changes so fast, how can I possibly stay on top of it all?
- How can I truly leverage my network to find work fast?
