Today in my social media class we discussed an article in the U.S.News , “What recruiters think when they see your linkedIn profile.”
The article states, “Nearly 95 percent of recruiters use LinkedIn to source and vet candidates, a recent survey found.”
Impressive bit of information I thought. They go on to say, “If you want to impress the heck out of recruiters, answer their questions.”
These were the questions they chose:
- Does this person really want the job?
- Who does this person know?
- Who has this person impressed?
- Does this person even have a personality?
- Is this person a big deal?
If this sounds interesting to you, click on the link and see what’s said about these questions.
I setup an account with linkedIn to help facilitate my eventual job placement. I have been steadily working on it to bring it up to a well organized, info packed presentation of my skills and other essential items necessary to get a great job.

Three more topics in my social media class for me to share: Why the trolls will always win, can we auto-correct humanity, and new reality for marketing on Facebook.
“Why the trolls will always win” by Kathy Sierra is of course about internet trolls. This article was massive, which after a while of listening to the same thing with different words applied made me stop reading it. I’m not discounting it, I just got the point early on. Anybody who uses their words as weapons to hurt someone is just immature and self-centered. I personally don’t give them the time of day, let alone, give them a rebuttal. So I guess I don’t agree with the author.
“Can we auto-correct humanity” by Prince Ea was brilliant and moving. Now because of how it was done, this piece was both interesting and effective. If you haven’t seen it, do so. I have no shield up anymore as I am on the down-hill-run of my life, so I’ll tell you that I teared up at the end. Effective message?
For this one all I can say is this, figure out what is too much and try to monitor yourself as much as you can (when you remember to do so).
lastly, the marketing topic about Facebook’s new marketing strategy was both looooong, and TMI. I lost interest straight away. Ineffective approach regardless of the material. Do I like the idea they come up with? Can’t say it’s good or bad for me, as I don’t own a business.
See ya next time friends.
