A particularly interesting part of social media to college students is the job search aspect that it can provide. Being in my last semester I’m trying to find new ways to use social networking to find possible jobs after graduation. A decade ago this wasn’t an option for job seekers, they just had regular networking… not the endless opportunities we have with social networking online. This article is from a radio station in Atlanta, GA which interviews a Kareem Taylor about how he used facebook in his senior year to land a career as a voice actor. It shows us how we can reach so many people with our talents online, we just need to put it out there in the right way.
Another good resource I found was this article called The Complete Guide to Getting a Job by Sudy Bharadwaj on mashable.com. It explains the dos and dont’s about social networking for job hunting.
