Length: 35 minutes 

Today's job search paradigm has changed dramatically since even just 2 years ago. HR recruiters are less likely to post open jobs on job boards, and hiring managers are more likely to rely on their own personal network to make hiring decisions. However, professionals still make the mistake of simply trolling job boards as the mainstay of their search.

The savvy job seeker knows that their network, both on and offline, is going to be the most valuable career asset they could cultivate.

In this course we will look at some powerful tips and tricks you can use to stand out from the crowd and really leverage the power of today's social media tools to quickly expand your network and improve your chances for getting hired sooner.

In this CareerShort you will learn:

  • Why your first impression is likely to be an online impression
  • The importance of your personal brand
  • The elements of a successful LinkedIn profile
  • A 4 step method for getting job interviews fast through social media
