Try A Social Media Resume For Job Seeking [INFOGRAPHIC]

Looking for a new position? No matter if you want to find a new job or you want to support your client in finding one: a resume is crucial. So why not try a new approach and build a social media resume? Online Colleges Columnist Kristin Marino wrote in her post about this idea:

Digital social resumes are a modern take on traditional resumes. While you definitely need to include your work experience and education on your social resume, you can expand the information you provide to prospective employers to include samples of work, pertinent links and more.

When you create your social resume, you are, in essence, creating an online presence as a person who makes a valuable contribution to the workplace and who is worth seeking out for positions recruiters are looking to fill. Even if you aren’t actively looking for a new job, it’s smart to create a presence on career networking sites such as LinkedIn.

The following infographic from Online Colleges shows:

  • 1 in 6 job seekers credit social media for landing their most recent/current job.
  • A social media CV enables you to keep a portfolio of work which you can easily update.
  • Make sure you have built a social media CV on LinkedIn.
  • Recruiters like positivity – so include membership in a professional organisation or examples of volunteering.
  • There are many different ways to create a social media CV and to test whether it’s working. (source)
