While a great resume and cover letter will aid you in your efforts, you also need to make sure your online presence complements your applications when searching for an entry level job. Here are some tips to get started.
Between Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter, you’ve probably shared a lot of different things with your friends on social media websites. While maintaining an active online life demonstrates your cultural engagement to employers, you should also make sure any unseemly aspects of your personal life aren’t on display.
As many employers will investigate your job qualifications by looking at your social media accounts, it helps to make things easier by linking everything together for their convenience. If you have a personal website, include shortcuts to your blog, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Believe it or not, frequently posting news articles, pictures, status updates, blog articles and other things that interest you can go a long way toward helping your job search. By staying involved with the online community, employers can see that you have a firm grasp of modern technology as well as a diverse range of professional, academic and personal interests.
