Social Media Breakfast 7: Getting Hired in a 2.0 World
With college graduation looming, the timing of yesterday’s Social Media Breakfast could not have been better, as the topic of discussion was getting hired in the 2.0 world.
Speakers included Stever Robbins, host of the Get-It-Done Guy Podcast, Aaron Strout, VP of New Media at Mzinga; Todd Defren, Principal at SHIFT Communications (and sponsor of the event) and Chris Brogan, VP of Strategy and Technology at CrossTech Media.
Each speaker briefly discussed how tools such as LinkedIn, Twitter, and personal blogs speak more about a candidate than a fluffed-up resume could. (Tell that to my campus career center!).
The idea that really stood out to me was the importance of managing a personal brand. In his presentation Todd said, “More and more, in the age of personal branding, if I don’t already know a person, I question, why should I [interview them]?”
With social media tools making it easier than ever to participate in the conversation and create a personal brand, what tips do you have for managing the brand of YOU?
