Use social media in your job search
At Curia, we experience social media becoming a larger and larger part of the job search and recruitment processes. Companies and recruitment consultancies use social media to post job advertisements, and employers often check potential candidates’ social media profiles when forming an impression of a potential employee.
As a job seeker, the social media LinkedIn is especially relevant as it is oriented towards the business world. LinkedIn is particularly directed to business partners, colleagues, occupational groups and the like, and it is designed for the purpose of networking and creating relations.
On LinkedIn, you have the possibility to create an online profile with your CV that is available for other users, allowing potential employers and recruitment consultants to see it. If you have an updated profile, you increase the likelihood of being headhunted or contacted by a potential employer. LinkedIn can also be used advantageously to network with others and create new links within your line of business through the many different groups on LinkedIn. This being so, Curia suggests you to join different occupational groups and take part in debates. In this way, you increase your visibility to potential employers and colleagues.
All of this makes LinkedIn a good tool, regardless of whether you are seeking a new job or merely seeking to keep in contact with members of your network.
We recommend you to follow Curia on LinkedIn as we continuously post job advertisements as well as tips and tricks for your job search.
