Focus on Social Media

I’m sure you’ve heard of this little thing called social media.

Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter? Well, a lot of companies and recruiters are now using these platforms to recruit and find top talent. So get your profile up and running or clean it up. That’s right, clean up the college party pics and get it looking professional. Start following companies you would like to work for. Be a part of the community.

Be active in participating and communicating with other industry professionals. Don’t be a one-sided job seeker.
