Social Media is a great tool to assist you in Career Development and help you in getting a new job.
Here are 4 great tips to boost your Career with Social Media:
1. Build your brand. Establish a brand for yourself online — when people browse your social media presence, they will get a sense of your expertise. In other words, don’t try to be a generalist. Figure out what niche you want to occupy, and build your brand around that.
2. Create reusable content: Create content that others can forward, share, repost, and retweet. The meat and potatoes of your strategy should be creating meaningful, interesting content that people will want to read and share — not becasuase of who you are, but because of what you say.
3. Don’t claim to be an expert. There’s nothing more repellent than someone who broadcasts his or her domain mastery in explicit terms. Instead, be humble but demonstrate your expertise with that knowledge and insight you share.
4. Mix business with pleasure: Contrary to popular advice, it is okay to mix personal social media profile with the business one. That said, you should ensure that whatever personal elements you blend into your professional profile supports your career aspirations and doesn’t damage your perception as a professional.
