The "Career Counselor's Guide to Pinterest" advises that the content a student pins should reflect their interest, goals, and brand. Pins are images with an embedded link that leads to a website or other resource. Pins can be original content a student created, such as a creative resume they would upload from their computer.
Think of hashtags as “File this under.” They are used to help categorize or follow topics. By clicking on a hashtag or searching Twitter for a certain hashtag, a Twitter user can see all of the tweets that contain the phrase. Using hashtags for the job search is a great way to get a tweet to appear in search results or a discussion that many are watching.
LinkedIn has often been referred to as “your resume online.” This is part of a series of “train the trainer” guides for career services practitioners to use to help college students use different social media effectively in their job searches.
