How to land a job through Social Media?

Back in the days we would have always thought and parents would have kept on telling us not to waste our valuable time on these Social Media websites like Facebook, Google plus, Linked In, Instagram. What if I told you don’t listen to your parents for once? Times are changing. You might just land your dream job through one of these mediums.  Many recruiters nowadays are head hunting on these social media websites so it’s best to keep them totally updated. Recruiters feel that social media websites are a good way to find new talent and easily get in touch with their prospective employees through the social media websites. It’s best to be part of various job groups on Facebook or keep in touch with various HR’s through LinkedIn.
More and more companies are recruiting using social media, and 40% of young professionals are using social media to get jobs, reports Elance. You can have a successful job search by following these three new ways to get a job using social media.

Few things to be kept in mind here are the following:

Whenever there are openings you might need to get in touch with them, also references do wonders sometimes.
