With summer just around the corner, many students and recent grads are still looking for ways to spend their time while getting a meaningful experience. In this video, TalentEgg founder Lauren Friese tells Canadas Next Top Ad Exec finalists about some of the must dos of job hunting. She explains the importance of networking and taking advantage of social media as well as offers a few tips on how you can stand out a get noticed! 1. Cast your net wide and deep * Take stock of tools available to help your with your job search. These can include your network, job boards, Google, your career centre and (of course!) TalentEgg. 2. Broadcast your availability * With tools like Twitter, Facebook, etc., its easy to let your network (and the world) know that youre looking for a job. Even if only one or two well-connected people know that youre looking for work, word can get around to dozens or even hundreds of other people! 3. Show off * Its not enough to say youre available. You have to let everyone know why youd make an excellent helping hand this summer! Leverage the opportunity the web gives you to get outside of your one-dimensional resumé and show off what really makes you a super star! 4. Approach organizations that dont appear to be hiring * Pitch your energy, expertise and willingness to learn to organizations—especially small and medium-sized organizations—even if they dont appear to be hiring. 5. Search outside the lines * Use the summer as an opportunity to try something
