On Tuesday night I had the pleasure of presenting to the University of California Washington Center here in DC on Tuesday night about using social media to get a job and to advance your career.
I don’t want to date myself, but I had to print out resumes and cover letters on paper and send them out in the mail. I remember the advisers at the UCLA career center advising me strongly that one should never wear white sock to an interview. White socks to an interview! I hope either they’ve stopped recommending this or that they never have to hire a designer or a programmer! The modern Bruin alumn on Tuesday had a hard time believing that but I swear it’s true!
It’s amazing how times have changed and how we have all of these amazing tools that we sometimes take for granted. I’m sharing the deck below not just for people doing job searches, but for anyone interested in learning more about social media, from the overarching theories that guide our client work to some incredible tools and ninja tricks that make it so much fun and so effective.
I hope that you find this useful and I welcome any comments.
