Episode Description

Social media and building your online brand are hot topics in the media today. The debate ranges from those contending you must be on social media – commenting, posting, and being visible – to succeed in your career, to others saying social media will ruin your career. In this episode of The Career Confidante, host Marie Zimenoff will bring sanity to the madness with practical points to consider what (if any) social media activity is right for your career and how you can use it as a career management or career advancement tool. We’ll talk about social media hiring trends, how to use the top career-related social media (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and even Instagram), and the truth about personal branding. If you are feeling overwhelmed, lost, or ready for a real strategy, tune in!
