If you’re job hunting, you already know how time-consuming it can be. Between scanning job postings, emailing resumes and cover letters and staying in touch with key figures in your industry, it can become a full time job of its own.
That’s where social media and mobile can help. If you’re reading this, you’re likely already active on social media. You’ve got a LinkedIn profile, (you do, don’t you?) you share updates on Twitter and Facebook, and you’ve got all the top job sites bookmarked on your computer. Now add in the immediacy of mobile, and you’ll be well on your way to scoring that next job.
Immediacy Is Key
When you see a job posting for a position you know you’d rock, don’t bookmark the page and wait until you get home and possibly forget to apply for it. Do it now. No, not on your desktop at work, or using your current employer’s computer. Instead on your lunch break take out your mobile device and apply using LinkedIn’s mobile app.
