Leveraging Social Media

Whether you are focused on finding a new position or growing in your current role, it is time to get your social media “house” in order. Your profiles are being viewed by everyone you meet and by those looking to meet you. While you don’t need to crank out a post to your network every time you get a win, your hard work on the big projects deserves to be noted within your profile summary. Take a few minutes today to add in new relevant experience details or to note any recent publications or speaking engagements. Remember, appropriate self-promotion is not bragging. Also ask yourself this question: Are you sporting a Social Media Mullet? Are you business up front (LinkedIn/Professional Website) and party in the back (Facebook/Instagram)? It’s ok to use different mediums of social media for different purposes, but be sure all are consistent with your professional goals – or get those privacy settings on lock down.
