http://www.vimeo.com/4313477Jeff Cohen has mastered the art of using social media to find a job. He was smart enough to use his own social media savvy to promote himself to his employer of choice, Bronto. Here’s what happened.
Check out Jeff’s video blog post to see his fun self-promoting video — and don’t miss the reader comments that include a positive, same-day response from a director at Bronto!
Totally creative. I loved it….I’d say this, you are DEFINITELY interview-worthy. I’ll touch base with our hiring manager Monday.
—Director at Bronto (Jeff’s targeted employer)
OK job seekers, you too can get ahead of the curve if you follow Jeff’s simple example. Anyone can do this, but only a few people are doing it. Jobs are out there but you have to rise above the noise. If you know what you want, you can make it happen.
Jeff’s creative job search technique is what I call “Job Search 2.0.” That refers to job searching in the age of Web 2.0 where users create their own experience on the web (making YouTube videos, writing their comments on blogs, etc.). Job seekers, the power is in your hands.
