TIP FOR JOB SEEKERS

Social Media: It’s Not Just for Farmville Anymore
Like it or not, social media is becoming one of the most instrumental tools in a job search and professional development. Twitter, known more for tracking celebrity escapades, has helped people find jobs and internships and network professionally (See our handout “Twitter and the Job Search” under our Handouts). In a recent survey, 82% of employers indicated they would use LinkedIn in their recruiting efforts (NACE, 2009). If you are currently in the job market, now is the time to update or create an online identity through social media.

For more information on how to use social media or other online resources for your job search or general career development, contact Commerce Career Services. To stay in the know, become a fan of Commerce Career Services on Facebook and follow Tom Fitch on Twitter. If you have not done so already, join UVA’s MS in MIT Alumni group on Linked In.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
