Get a Job! (Sha-na-na-na, sha-na-na-na-na)

Sunday, September 13th, 2009

In October of 1957 (before I was born), The Silouhettes famously had a hit doo-wop song called “Get a Job

The song’s lyrics would start with “Get a Job,” followed by the catchy (but nonsensical) doo-wop hook, “Sha-na-na-na, sha-na-na-na-na”.  Today however, that hook might be: “Social-media, using-social-media,”  because effectively leveraging social media is a key part of any job search today.

Accordingly, here are some tips which you may find useful in leveraging social media to find a job.  (I have also included a few links useful for employers who may be leveraging social media to hire employees.)
