Transcript of Job Search and Social Media

Mindful Approach to Social Media
Clean up your Social Media presence
Social Media and Recruiting
How to "be there?"
Notice new things
Look at familiar things from a different perspective
Ellen Langer: Mindful vs. Mindless

When you are "not there" you are "not there" to know that you are "not there" (and we are "not there" much of the time)
Example of being "not there" :
"Not there" + social media = potentially negative/embarrassing consequences
Mindful vs. Mindless
Peer 1: they are so cool
Peer 2: they look ridiculous
Peer 3: why wasn't I included at that party?
Parent 1: that's my kid, so proud and glad he's having fun
Parent 2: I'm calling the school tomorrow
Employer 1: horrible choices, no discretion, will never work here
Employer 2: I know him, that's Sam's son, I can overlook it...
Peer 1: they look smart
Peer 2: they look like geeks
Peer 3: why wasn't I included in that study group?
Parent 1: that's my kid, so proud, glad he's working hard
Parent 2: why is he wasting time at a nursing home?
Employer: looks like he is collaborating, studying, invested in community service, bring him in for an interview
