Social media is an effective way to connect with a job. However, if not done properly or done without concern for your online presence, social media can make you lose opportunities, too. But, neglecting social media, specifically LinkedIn, is not optional for most professions and locations.
Establish “social proof” about who you are, your knowledge, and your expertise through social media. A powerful social proof can possibly help you get your next job, without making so much effort and spending a lot of time on applications.
On top of LinkedIn, job postings are accessible all throughout Facebook and Twitter. A lot of employers have Facebook pages for both marketing and, usually, also for looking for potential candidates. Employers are posting jobs on Facebook more and more.
