Using Social Media When Job Hunting

Persistent or Pushy: Do You Use Social Media When Job Hunting?

This anonymous Savvy Community member posted in our Ask Savvy group wanting advice on using social media when job hunting. Weigh in with your thoughts in the comments below.

I've always been told, when trying to land that coveted position— be persistent, but where does the "persistence line" trail off and pushy begin? In a world where social media can hurt or help your job search, it's tough to know when to draw the line. Sure you may want to follow potential co-workers or employers, and adding them on Linkedin sounds like a good idea, but IS this okay? Have you ever used any social media platforms (in this way) to help you land a position and if so, did it work? Did it backfire?

Ask anything career or budget-related — well almost anything — by posting your questions in the Ask Savvy group, and readers and I will weigh in to support you.
