1 How to find your next job using Social Media? Practical applications By John Roland, MDiv Director of Alumni Services & Student Success or
2 A survey by Jobvite noted that more than 22 million Americans used social networks to find jobs in In fact, one in six people, more than 15%, say they found a job through social networking.
3 Social Media Benefits... Four main benefits: communication collaboration community collective intelligence opportunities
5 Social Media (SM) and the Donut Factor---We can define social media in terms of donuts, but think of SM more like an appetizer or dessert in your marketing mix. It s certainly NOT the main entrée and won t fill you up yet.
7 We don t need social media. You may be ignoring social media, but it s not ignoring you. Ignore Social Media at Your Own Risk. Churches, Ministries, and the entire community are active in social media. They engage in peer discussion. If you don t engage with them, the conversation continues. But, it goes on without you.
8 Is Social Media just a fad?? While U.S. unemployment hovers around 8%, job postings requiring social media skills rose 87% from 2011 to 2012, topping 13,000 in one month alone earlier this year. Among Fortune 500 companies, 73% now have company Twitter accounts and 66% have Facebook Pages (FB). Corporate America is racing to apply social tools to everything from building customer relationships to connecting teams of employees around the world. Analysts estimate that $1.3 trillion in value stands to be unlocked by new social technologies. Fortune magazine

12 How to use Twitter? 1. Create a Twitter account that showcases your professional profile. Put together your Twitter account as though it were your online business card. 2. Start following people and institutions. Figure out who the relevant people are in your field and become their follower. Once you ve built up a good roster of people to follow, start retweeting (forwarding) intriguing tweets by those people. 3. Use WeFollow.com or Listorious.com to find people on Twitter who share professional interests. 4. Create content. I should be reading widely and tweeting links I find intriguing. The more interesting and relevant your tweets, the more likely you are to attract followers. Source:
13 How to use Twitter? 4. Send private notes to potential mentors. This may be the toughest tip to follow, since it requires maximum confidence. But a great way to find a job is to reach out directly to someone in your field and let them know that you are looking for new opportunities. It s best to do this after you have interacted with someone through retweets or responses to tweets they have made. 5. Target companies. You can follow them, engage in their conversations, retweet their messages and eventually you may find yourself engaging in a one-on-one conversation with a top executive at a firm. Source:
14 Create a blog Begin writing posts which are informative about your area of expertise. Promote your blog as you are promoting your expertise. See yourself as the expert in your field and you are writing as a consultant to an audience. Provide samples of speeches, projects, journal articles, etc. Write as if you are on a staff and have an audience.
15 Why should you be hired? Write a blog post about why you would be a good hire for a company? In one page, why should they consider you and what would you bring? Include this link to all of your correspondence, post it on Facebook, and actively send it on Twitter. Here is an example of a woman who did this.
16 Brand yourself What do you want to be known for as a professional? Provide relevant content, articles, opinions, and information in that direction. Thanks to social media, recruiting is no longer a top-down, closed-door process. The employer-candidate relationship is becoming highly transparent and conversational. By having a well-defined online presence whether it s through a ministry blog or Twitter profile job candidates can shout out to the world exactly who they are and express their expertise. Candidates can now go online and scour a potential employer s Facebook page or website, even read through the Twitter profiles, blog posts or comments of current and ex-employees, then decide whether to still pursue the job.
17 What do you want to POST? P: People (Who do you want to reach?) O: Objective (What do you want them to do?) S: Strategy (How to do it?) T: Technology (Implementing Technology)
18 What do you want to POST? Upcoming class information, interesting articles, photos and videos of the activities of your ministry. Don t post just to post. In other words, have something to say or don t say anything. Post on your top channels at least once a day. If you re stumped, think about what you would talk about with a friend. Don t constantly Sell you; it turns people off. Present yourself as an ACTIVE consultant in your field.
19 Pick 5 Social Media channels and stick with them.
20 Create a living resume with active recommendations, connections, and links. You can customize your public profile URL when you edit your public profile. Custom public profile URLs are available on a first come, first served basis. Here are directions: Customizing your public profile URL Actively request recommendations from people who have seen your work. Link them to your profile.
21 LinkedIn is a massive networking opportunity for professionals and contributing to the group discussions will present you as a thought leader in your industry. You should target the right groups and start conversations related to your areas of expertise. At the beginning of your resume, highlight what your 3 core strengths or competencies are. Resume needs to be focused like a laser. What sets you apart from others who want to do the same thing? Your Value Proposition is your response to this very important question. Three core competencies. List the three most important competencies that argue for success in your proposed position
22 Search for employees and former employees in the target company, business, or organization who are in your network of connections. Reach out to them and ask if they will forward your resume to HR or the hiring manager. Talk to former employees as well because they will be more candid. By providing the Linkedin profile URL in all of your correspondence, it is a subtle way of sharing (i.e. bragging) about your background, education, recommendations, and credibility.
23 Organize your pictures highlighting you actively participating in ministry. Highlight successful events and people involved in serving. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a 1000 words.
24 Ask Your Friends for Help. There s nothing wrong with saying, Hey, I m looking for new opportunities on Facebook. Most people on Facebook have networks between 100 and 300 people, and when you think about the networks they have, you re now reaching approximately 90,000 people. It s important to remember that you re not only using your friends but also their friends to find your next next gig. At least one of them works for a company that has a job just for you. How to Approach It? It depends on your situation: If you re an active job seeker, tell people you re looking. Talk about what you like about your career and what kind of position you are looking for. Talk about how you re keeping busy with activities related to your career and post interesting articles that might attract attention of recruiters. Post early and often, because the more you post, the more you appear in your friend s newsfeeds. If you re a passive job seeker, message people that can help you privately. Remember you might have people that you re working with now (like, uh, your boss) as friends on Facebook, so it has to be a private job search. Your updated information isn t broadcasted to your wall. When you craft the message, don t sound desperate talk about the great opportunities you are looking at, and how the job market is growing. Also talk about how you are working on your skills. Source:
25 Facebook marketplace Craigslist, Gumtree and other online marketplaces are simple tools that can be very useful for your job hunt. Have you tried Facebook marketplace? Facebook s marketplace may not be as comprehensive as other marketplaces but that can benefit you as there is likely to be less competition for any roles posted there. Join and get active in groups The groups on Facebook are just like Linkedin groups, a place to discuss and post news about a particular topic, industry or interest. You can add value to the group by joining in or starting discussions, posting links and other resources to the wall, moderating or managing sections of the group and so on. Once you have had a few conversations with people, send a friend invitation and they are likely to accept as you now know each other, albeit only online. The objective here is to network with and get noticed by others in your industry, this could lead to you being considered for upcoming job opportunities even before they are posted. Source:
26 Posting ads It s really simple to set up an ad campaign on Facebook. You can put a short ad together and link it to your bio. You can then pick what demographics you want to target and your maximum spend per day, minimum $1. The more specific you can make it the better, you only want the right people clicking through as you pay per click. These ads are likely to render some interest in yourself and may or may not lead to your dream job but it s certainly another way to reach out. Conclusion Can you really get a job with Facebook? Well, let s just say it s not going to overtake Linkedin anytime soon on that front. But if you spend time on there anyway, why not turn it into something productive. Source:
27 Post your presentation videos on Vimeo 1. Vimeo has no ads YouTube can overlay adds to any video you post, unless you have a YouTube professional account. 2. Vimeo has no video length requirement YouTube you have a time limit of 15 minutes Vimeo gives you no length limit, but a file size limit of 500 MB per week for a free basic account 3. Vimeo has a more professional look The interface and look to Vimeo are more professional than YouTube. Being we want to portray excellence in all we do, Vimeo gives you that professional look. Source:
28 Post your presentation videos on Vimeo 4. HD video is expected on Vimeo, while on YouTube they will shrink the quality of your video With video cameras and mobile devices having better cameras there is a need to have a platform with higher quality video. YouTube will want your video to get by on the smallest bandwidth possible, Vimeo wants your video to shine. 5. By using video it allows you to share your unique message; tell your story; and paint the picture of your mission through video for businesses, companies, and organizations in a way that can connect with them at a more personal and interactive level.

29 Create a board of advisors Ask people (not family) to join your board of advisors who have a pulse in your industry, know your career goals, and believe in your intrinsic values. They will make you aware of your blind spots and speak tough love truth to you. Provide encouragement, networking, and wisdom. Meet in person or on conference call. Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. Proverbs 15:22
30 Listen to the voices... What is being said about you in Social Media? Set up Google Alerts that notifies you when someone mentions you on the internet. Set up a listening station. Great example on how to do it: Social Mention* searches across multiple channels for mentions of you or your ministry in real time
31 SM used to connect Alums with University Reach out to your alma mater university to see what employment support programs they have. Review what job postings they have. Ask if they have a list of alums in your area. Reach out to them, introduce yourself, and ask for a referral. Produce content for your university publications highlighting your experience. Reach out to faculty at the university. Ask for their referral to jobs they know about.
32 Networking appointments You have made connections via social media but finding a job is ALL about networking. Surveys consistently find 80% of all jobs are found via networking. Get out from in front of your computer and MEET people! Contact people in your field and ask for an appointment to seek advice, information, and referrals. Don t ask for a job. A: Seek Advice I: Request Information R: Ask for referrals Make it brief and ask if you can follow up later.
