Your Comfort Zone and Social Media Networking

This is it, now is the time to get out there without even leaving the comforts of your laptop! If you are about to graduate or simply looking for a job, start thinking about utilizing Social Media Networking as a tool for networking and landing your dream job. If you don't have a LinkedIn account even created, you are already behind the times. If you have one, but hardly use it, your poor account is only collecting dust over a pile of gold! USE it to the best of your abilities. Explore it! Jobs are posted everyday and a lot of them are exclusive to the LinkedIn community. In addition, make sure you have recommendations on your profile, as potential employers view this as a "character reference."

The more contacts you add to your account the more doors are going to open up for you! Join groups! Get active in discussions! Search for employers of interest and reach out to them. Don't be afraid to break through and get out of your comfort zone. Remember to always be professional, especially if you arte in need of a job! Check out this useful You Tube clip for new grads!
