Using Social Media

Employers can post notices of job vacancies for free on most of the “social media networks”.

These media are online sites that allow anyone to post messages of their own and respond to, or comment on messages posted by others. They are not controlled by the professional marketing firms as newspapers or TV stations are. Individuals and companies can open their own accounts, post their own information and contribute to ongoing discussions.

Some of the most popular social media are Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and MySpace. Most of these sites have free accounts and each site contains information to assist you in setting up and using your account, both of which are relatively easy. The number of sites grows almost daily, but once you start participating in online discussions, staying current becomes much simpler.
