LinkedIn and other social media sites are excellent resources for landing a job, but the key is knowing how to use them. Read below to find out about how you can utilize LinkedIn in your job search.
Your LinkedIn home screen is compiled of the posts that everyone in your network has recently made. The updates are constantly changing and providing insight to what other people you know are doing. The tool is especially beneficial to learn about other companies, the type of people who work there, and how to go about applying for a position. Often, people may post about their company hiring or provide insight to the work culture of a business. When you find something of interest that a person you know has posted, you can contact them directly to find out more. LinkedIn also allows you the opportunity to be a part of up to 50 groups. When you are part of a group you can see menus for discussions, promotions, jobs, members and search. The menu can reveal job discussions and positions. Joining groups allows you to engage in conversations about companies and can provide an indication of where to look next for a job.
Navigating LinkedIn and other social media sites can help boost your job search by providing you with primary source information about a company or a particular job position. Once you’ve used LinkedIn to have a better feel for the type of company you want to work for, visit Gigats to see what opportunities may be available for you!
