Using social media to get a job

Do your students know that their personal digital footprint could cost them a job?  Do you know how to advise them on using social media platforms such as Linkedin, Twitter and blogs to get work?

Our eBook, From Student to Salary with Social Media, shows students, academics, careers advisers and parents how to use social media to get a job. This practical guide is packed with tips, case studies and views from students, headhunters and employers.

A third of employers now use social media for recruitment. We run dozens of social media workshops for schools, colleges and universities – students, advisers and academics are always staggered that employers do Google searches on candidates.

To accompany the book we have developed workshops for students, advisers and academics on how to get a job using social media.  

These cover

  • Cleaning up your personal digital footprint
  • LinkedIn to be found by and to target employers
  • Writing and promoting a blog
  • Setting up and using Twitter strategically

“ From Student to Salary with Social Media” is available for just 99p from the Facebook page of Northern Lights PR and also from Kindle.  If you would like us to run a workshop for your students please contact us for more information – all workshops will include a free eBook for each participant attending.
