Join social media groups to find your next great job

Here is the daily hiring and getting hired tip:

Get social to find your next dream job.  In today's connected world many of the best positions are filled before they ever get advertised.  Social media is not just a place to catch up with friends, business owners and managers are connecting with potential candidates.

The best place to find these hidden opportunities are in groups on Facebook and LinkedIn.  Join five or six groups specific to your industry and contribute.  Comment when there is a topic you have an opinion on, or pose a question to the group.  These groups are one of the first places management goes to hunt for fresh talent.  Sometimes they will even post right in the group that they need a new employee and ask who knows someone.

Most importantly start engaging in groups now.  It can take time to be noticed as a contributor, and you want to build those connections before you need to use them to find an employer.

Not a bad idea!

I am constantly finding executive managers looking for people in these groups.

I am in quite a few on facebook. It's not just the future jobs out there, but also the help that you get much like we do here on DS.
H Gregory Gershman
Quite so Lauren. The automotive community is very social about what works in stores. Great point. You can get tunnel vision with what is happening in your market, groups let you hear what is going on around the country.
Lauren Moses
No doubt. I think too often people in these groups, and even sometimes on DS, people get big headed about what they feel works best. I know that I'm new to the industry, but we are all here to help each other. Not fight against each other. I often have to reign in my little firecracker temper. Social media is a new ball game and no longer just about seeing what others are doing throughout the day. Not to mention how many employers now check your social to see if you are a good candidate to work for their company.
