Social Media Marketing and P.R for Contractors
Learn to Network and access the hidden job market-getinto and back into work quicker!
Social networking has established itself in modern society as a valuable and fun communication tool whereby many people remain in touch or network with each other.
Over 80% of professionals between the ages of 18 and 40 now use Social networking tools such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ and youtube 3-4 times per week. However very few people have been able to leverage Social Networking in order to enhance their career opportunities.
At BITE since December 7th 2009 Social Networking has been established as a fundamental tool of each candidates job search, with each candidate developing their Social Network Marketing plan.
The Standard for professionals in the UK is LinkedIn and the use of a well defined complete profile. 80% of your Social network work should go into working with your profile and image on this site. However it is also vital to harness the benefits of Facebook the biggest website in the world and maximise the benefits of Google cost effectively. Many candidates see a real conflict of interest between Social Networking and Professional networking with the former only offering to damage their chances of attaining employment. In fact used correctly Social networking can massively enhance each individual’s chances of finding work.
Professional networking has long been established as a useful tool to enhance your career with and this can now be developed within the context of Social Media into an incredibly powerful tool to access the hidden job market with. Over 50% of all contract work is now attained through networking and with Social networking each contractor can quickly see the benefits of their work and access work within the hidden job market that is not advertised.
At BITE we offer free Social Networking evening seminars to help established contractors enhance their position and offer social networking training sessions for all candidates looking for a contract role.
