I was invited by Roxanne Ravenel of The Savvy Jobseeker to participate within a live blog/radio chat relative to tapping and properly utilizing job-search 2.0 strategies. Of course I accepted.
Some of you might not know what job-search 2.0 strategies mean. You’ve probably heard of Internet 2.0, am I right? Well, job-search 2.0 also means that next generation of tools that allow a jobseeker to network, job-search, build a personal brand, and yes, conduct a proactive campaign.
Just to give you a bit of overview on the topics covered, here are some key points on why 2.0 strategies are so critical and should be adopted by jobseekers.
First, the next generation of job-search tools and forums allow the jobseeker to be proactive rather than reactive relative to their job-search and careers. Competition for jobs are fierce, so taking a proactive stand in today’s job market is even more critical as job competition heats up.
Second, online networks, blogging, micro-blogging, and maybe even bookmarking services put your candidacy online for on-going performance.
Third, building relationships using social networking channels enable jobseekers to source for information more efficiently and more effectively.
Let’s get right to it shall we.
Oh, and forgive me. What for you ask? Forgive the number of times I said “um” throughout the first half of the interview. Sometimes nervousness causes bad speech habits to surface, and well, I’m a prime candidate for such things. =]
