The ability to define your goals and intiatives through social media or blogging can be powerful in the job hunt, if done effectively. Talent Culture is a website that shares advice and offers services to employers and future employees through community interaction and social media. Blogger Chris Perry offers five ways to create a brand for yourself, helping you stand out among the application pool. Perry mentions blogging, getting quoted, and finding opportunities for public speaking as good options. While these are all helpful, it's important to maintain professionalism in all social media accounts. Sharing Facebook photos or Tweeting with inappropriate language are things employers can see and take into account.
