#TChat Recap: How Social Networking And The Job Search Pay Off

This week we were joined by Robin Schooling, accomplished HR Leader, strategist and advisor; and Cyndy Trivella, Marketing Manager for SmartSearch applicant tracking systems and Events & Accounts Manager at TalentCulture. We discussed ways that social networking and the job search can pay off as well as pitfalls when you don’t mis-manage your social brand.

Developing and presenting your social media persona in a way which grows reach and influence with peers is no easy job. There are no ‘quick fixes’ when it comes to developing your social media brand. There are, however, some proven tactics and philosophies to consider which could help optimize the influence of your social networking efforts and help you develop important new business relationships.

Robin and Cyndy shared insights and methods around how to create personal and corporate brand engagement. Managing your online profile and persona consistently and accurately is where it all starts. Those organizations searching you and your “brand” out and reviewing who you are will be looking for anomalies that don’t add up — and you want to always have everything add up — even if you’re not looking for a job.
