Social networking opens the door for a lot of creative job search techniques. Take a look at this video describing how a few Twitter users attracted the attention of Creative Directors and landed jobs. As the post on TNW Twitter, where I saw this story, notes, this technique would only work if the target audience is using Twitter.com, and not a a desktop or mobile application. (Hat tip to @shally for sharing this post on Twitter.)

How can you use social media to attract your target audience?

I recently had a birthday, and receiving warm birthday wishes from people via Twitter and Facebook — many from people I have never met in person — helped me reflect on social media and how valuable it is, both personally and professionally. I don’t usually record video posts, but thought I’d turn over a new leaf and try it out! Thanks for watching, and be sure to share your experiences with social media for your personal and professional lives in the comments!
