Talent is Social (Jobseeker Edition)
For decades, we’ve been trained to put together a concise, attention-grabbing resume, to shotgun it out to as many prospective employers as possible, and to mold ourselves to the job description of any opening that looked interesting. But what if that tried-and-true approach is completely ineffective in this era of Facebook, Glassdoor and LinkedIn? What if the best fit wasn’t about finding as much as it was about being found?
In this presentation, personal branding specialist Eric Weaver will show executive job seekers how to leverage social tools and personal branding to take advantage of the shifts in the recruiting profession. Attendees will learn:
- Why being found is so much better than stalking
- How to package your personal brand
- Which social sites are best for promoting your skills
- The importance of testimonials and proof points
- How to scatter “social media breadcrumbs”
Attendees will walk away armed with how-to techniques for finding the right job with the best fit.
