social media job searchHad it up to here with social media and all the talk about it? If so, it’s understandable. Unless you’ve somehow managed to live under a rock the past couple years, the social media “experts” are everywhere and they’ve indoctrinated all your friends and family to believing they can’t live without it.

Around here we use a lot of social media (or SoMe as us “gurus” like to call it). And I can honestly say, a lot of what makes up SoMe is pretty silly. Even LinkedIn, as “professional” as it tries to make you believe, has some silliness to it, like the endorsements feature that has perfectly rational people playing its game.

Having said that, I do think today’s technical leaders need to be careful not to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Like it or not, social media is not going to go away, and it does (I promise) have some useful elements to it. If you’d like to hear more about it, I’ve put together the following post:

How Social Media Can Revolutionize Your Job Search
