On social media you divulge information about your life, views and personality. Depending on the posts, this can be good or bad for your job search. Our tip: Use these platforms specifically for self-marketing! Because Xing, LinkedIn, Facebook and others can help to attract the attention of potential employers and contacts to you in a positive way.
Do you travel a lot, are you passionate about chess or do you analyze the stock market in your spare time? Great! Do you have a soft spot for math, languages or IT? All the better! Share your strengths and interests with the world – in the form of posts, comments and virtual resumes. Use LinkedIn or Xing, for example, to make your professional qualifications public.
Engage in networking! The more you network with other users, the easier you are to find on the World Wide Web. Keep making contacts – professional and personal – and connect with people all over the world. LinkedIn and Xing offer you the fabulous opportunity to connect in a professional environment with users from a wide variety of industries and fields. Perhaps even with a potential employer.
