Presentation

"Leverage Social Media to Shorten Your Search"

As we know, the number and features of social media websites has grown exponentially, and both employers and recruiting agencies have made increasing use of them to recruit, vet, interview and hire candidates.
Naturally, it behooves every professional job seeker, a.k.a. Treasure-Hunter, to make good use of social media.
The February 20 WIND North meeting will focus on several aspects of this type of platform, which is morphing at light speed and shows no signs of slowing down.
You will learn –
> the best new sites for your search
> how established sites like LinkedIn are expanding and often limiting their services
> the best ways to
    – navigate the changing terrain
    – utilize it
    – and coordinate the social media side of your search with tried and true conventional methods and tactics
As usual, Fred Nothnagel will lead a discussion and provide handouts, some of which are his own creations, based on his research.
Come join us at WIND North next Wednesday morning and come away with new and better ways to get the jump on your less well-informed competitors.
