So come back to career accelerator -- we -- going to break I asked the question what if you could sell yourself instead of with a razor made of potential employer.
With that we 140 characters or -- to answer the question -- that we more valuable than your -- -- I James Andrews owner and partner of social people.
I key influence her is gonna answer that question forests can you really do this -- Don't employers still want to see that whole historical background of what you do or he can he do -- -- 140 characters.
I mean obviously there's some -- -- there's some opportunity through -- to learn more about candidates.
Through Twitter through their voice.
You know what they're saying but I think only the initial connection.
Is is what we're seeing you know I've I found someone is looking for -- you know looking for a particular position through Twitter.
I don't fit trend -- conveniently and -- -- candidates using to -- Yet it -- it seems to me is whether the trend we're talking about is how to I used not just laying dead.
Let's say to -- later Facebook although you know -- all of these different social media outlets.
To land that job right.
Yep so I think that there's several ways you can do that I mean you know being able to find.
You know that the individuals in the organization.
Track them on Twitter re tweet what they're saying.
Becoming -- with them it's -- is really just an extension of what we do in the real world.
Which is saying -- -- like which had to -- or hey I agree with you I think that's what Twitter gives you as a personal connection to the people you're following.
You know you mentioned Twitter I've actually used it as a reporter I've been able to access people like cutting get through their secretary yeah are -- are system yeah.
But I was able to get through to them you know I would.
Find them on Twitter.
I would request to follow that it would send a message and a couple of times they've responded so there was a way to make that connection that's which talking about -- here.
Absolutely absolutely it's a great authentic way to think hey I hear you on this thing to you.
And you know while I'm here and then when they the important thing when -- using Twitter.
It's make sure that bio section is completed -- you don't have a non picture yet you don't have an egg.
You know which is what happens when you have a picture.
And you've put it in your -- -- information about you may be using an about me page which takes them off the Twitter mile onto a longer mile.
But you give people context of who you are using the buyouts -- So some welcome -- that we.
TV I'm with the bio and then that's right then sell yourself for the Resnick -- I wanna ask that question again -- is a tweet.
More valuable than your resume apparently 70% of people -- have been successfully hired a candidate.
Using social networks.
And this is coming from job by social recruiting estimated in 2012.
But which platforms to recruiters look at you know again another survey Linkedin FaceBook Twitter.
What are those those sites perhaps that we're not used to using where we could up our cash -- Right so all of them are paying in this picture for the potential employer who you walk right.
So Twitter is the great way for media -- we hire tons of people obviously in social media we're always looking for people.
Who work -- community managers which is when fastest growing job and and in corporate America Tuesday.
In the social media -- so.
In -- communications and media marketing job actually -- you know we're gonna look for you know how well using the tone in the finale the tools.
Are you on brand message.
Pump but you know I would -- Lincoln is still solid place to actually.
You know build your brand to build your beer your who you are the professional world yeah and then I think places like FaceBook and in -- Steven.
Give people more -- rounded view view of the as a whole person.
-- bit I'm looking at this survey result 93%.
Respondents say Linkedin is Pataki's platform but.
Should you I just had this habit -- literally will connect with just about anybody who reaches out to me on Linkedin.
Is young it even when they're not necessarily industry related but also yeah.
Is that a mistake -- -- you know like with FaceBook you don't wanna have a thousand friends but with Linkedin would have to wanna build your network -- -- -- you -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- gets a little Dicey when people are asking you to introduce them to other people -- but I think Lincoln as a place where you can really be open.
I'm FaceBook I'm a little more judicious some little more closed loop I'd like we are -- world.
Yeah and Twitter -- open obviously I'd actually did you before the show by the way.
You know and I'm I'm open to connecting with the people on Twitter but I think if you're building your personal profile all of it is open season and that's really important everything you put on there reflects your personal brand -- -- able hiring you.
-- let's use the example when you when you yeah me up on Twitter what did you see I know what I put -- I have specifics that I go to Twitter.
And -- for FaceBook I'm a little bit more laid back -- that I keep close that's more friends although I assume people can figure out how to get in there but for the Twitter you know what did you learn.
-- the -- the last thing between it was two days ago whether -- use it to can't talk to promote about stories on fox right.
-- and -- that was able quickly see you know through your bio that you went to Syracuse -- -- from Miami.
You don't really quick -- there tidbits of information about you.
Into the acting connect with yourself that was interviewing with you I think that was at Syracuse that the media school couple weeks ago it's really fun institution I love your university at least -- breaking ground.
On elements -- and subject that we can actually -- on an ounce I think for that reason I think Twitter is also for the the person is out there in the job in the job world.
You can actually learn a lot more about the person you're interviewing find out you both went to Miami both what you -- -- -- you have a -- and action.
You get you're giving away by the way all of the the skills the secrets from.
Tricks -- -- yeah porters use the legal and interviews with people he always read their bio but that he does I don't maps Google search on concerns name.
And I look for the bizarre stuff you know the basic stuff that's right and interview them I'd look for -- -- not some -- -- -- if I can relate to them yeah cars the pre interview.
I -- cars let let's can try on some level so that then when I have to ask the questions.
-- there's a level of trust I would imagine be the same thing with a job and.
I'll give you another free one you know FaceBook -- one billion people.
-- to really interest being armed social intersection so I'll put that Adam Shapiro in my FaceBook feed and I'll see that we're connected to a guy grew up where or somebody I -- here are you don't actually sort of it forever -- people -- connection interest in people.
You find out your commitment to that -- -- -- -- -- yeah I do a lot of that sort of use.
Using the social graph to find -- the world is so small that you and are probably even more connected than we've realized.
