Have you tried Pinterest for your job research? It’s not just for girls!

Just a blog entry with some tips:

Being the annoyingly keen little intern I am, I have been swatting away on employability and careers related things for Management School students. On a day when I don’t have much on I spend some of my time researching social media as a tool for recruiting and to be recruited. I have a Scoop.it board  (http://www.scoop.it/t/careers-and-employability-esea) and a pinterest board (http://pinterest.com/eemaa27/employability/) as well as the facebook and twitter pages. 

I use Hootsuite to manage the Facebook and Twitter pages but you can also use Hootsuite to conduct a job search for you (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFOVTE7RtEw – make your search tip the geographical area you are interesting in finding jobs in e.g. Southampton, UK)   

Pinterest has some really helpful boards with infographics about employability and careers. Some of it comes from the USA and refers to resumes as opposed to CVs but it is all really helpful stuff! This is a link to job search infographics http://pinterest.com/tfsullivan/job-search-infographics/ its a more interesting means of looking at what you will be faced with come graduation. 

I hope you’ve found some of these things helpful
