Taking your job search “mobile”

It’s become a fact of life that EVERYTHING is mobile theses days, from scheduling a lunch with a friend, and social media to searching for a new position.  I find myself dumbfounded by the number of companies that haven’t reached out to the masses via Mobile communication.  The article Seekers go mobile while employers lag behind”  breaks down the percentages and frankly I was definitely taken off guard….  “Only 7 percent of corporate career sites are optimized for mobile devices… and 19 percent of job seekers reported using their mobile device for career activities”.  All I have to say is wow.

The question is.. are you going mobile with your search??? If not, it’s probably something to think about!

side note… HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!!!

How to use Social Media to help with your job search…

There are many resources available to job seekers looking for that great new opportunity.. One of those resources most definitely would be Social Networking… and Twitter is one of the front runners.

Here’s a wonderful article “10 Tweeple to foll0w during your job search“, by Heather Huhman from US World & News Report.  The article lists some of the most popular and respected individuals in Social Media who are very active and up to-date on the current events when it comes to searching for a new career choice.

In regards to other Social Networking resources, don’t forget about LinkedIn as well as the new and popular Google+.. both are great avenues to search for a new career as well as research the companies.

Hope this helps!!
