Are You a Dummy? How To Find Jobs Using Social Media

Know any jobseekers out there? Are they struggling on social media? Then look no further than Joshua Waldman’s new book “Job Searching with Social Media for Dummies“.

I had a chat with Joshua the other day to get some pearls of wisdom for jobseekers out there. In this interview we discuss how important Personal Branding and LinkedIn are, the power of blogging for applicants and how to craft an effective career strategy.

Joshua’s top three tips to jobseekers are:

1. Make sure you look good online (you wouldn’t go to an interview naked).

2. Bring your online relationships offline and speak to people in person and on the phone.

3. Have a strategy, it’s easy to get lost on social media and missing the bigger picture.

You can connect with Joshua at Career Enlightenment. Enjoy the interview and we would love to get your feedback on it!
