I am currently a student and an Intern for One Million Act of Innovation (OMAI). OMAI is an organization that encourages innovation and helps businesses, students and government to create new and efficient ways of doing things. I’ve been learning so much while working with OMAI and one thing I’ve learned is new ways of using social media in my everyday life.  A new way to find a career is through the use of social media. Social media sites such as LinkedIn can help you create a resume online and connect with individuals all over the globe. Facebook helps you stay in touch with old friends and help you network when looking for a new job. Being present in the social media world can help open doors that would not have normally existed for yourself and network with people you would not have normally met.

One technique that I really appreciated learning is how twitter search can be an awesome tool. If you are looking for a new career you can search for jobs and a whole bunch of conversations that are related to jobs will appear. For an example; if you search job posting you can search for companies that have tweeted that they are hiring!! It is also great to follow employers that you are interested in working for and to see what they are tweeting about; maybe even participate in a conversation.

Use social media as a tool to help you gain advantages in your life!!!

Share ways that you use social media to help you in your everyday life.
