I have been working on a small project in my spare time. I have been learning priceless skills over these las few months, and began to apply them on my own. I launched a small project called the New School Resume. This concept of developing a New School Resume will enable job seekers to use social media tools to connect with future employers.
Today I spent the afternoon running around Boston for the MITX: Digital Combine event. I was on a panel with Monster.com’s founder Jeff Taylor, and OAT PR genius Rory Koehane. We spoke about using social media to increase visibility and connect for an interview. We spoke of the various social networks, and more specifically Twitter becoming the latest craze.
If you are looking for a job, you must begin your task of building a New School Resume. Follow any or all of the steps to increase your visibility, and make the connection beyond cold calling a future employer.
