One thing modern job seekers have to get used to is the prevalence of social media in the job market. In fact, one in six job seekers credit social media with helping them land their current job and 92% of employers use some form of social media in their recruiting. That’s why it’s so important anyone currently looking for a job maintain a social media resume.
A social media resume can help you network with others in your field, can provide links so potential employers can see your past projects firsthand, and can be updated instantaneously. While Linkedin is currently the most popular site when it comes to social media resumes, you may also consider creating one on WordPress, Tumblr, ResumeSocial.com, Razume.com, Ziggs.com or VisualCV.com. And, while you can’t really set up a resume on Twitter or Facebook, don’t forget to maintain them and keep them professional as well.
