Tools for Success: Pinterest


Have you ever considered using Pinterest for your job search? While Pinterest is great for home décor wishful thinking, arts and crafts you’ll never do, and a plethora of dinner ideas, it’s also great for job seekers. Try this week’s tool for success to help organize your job search efforts. Here’s how:

1. Create a board for resume templates and advice. Find hundreds of free resume templates and pin the ones that best fit you and your job. There are also plenty of pins featuring tips and tricks for your resume.

2. Create a board for interview outfit ideas and advice. If you’re not sure what’s appropriate to wear, Pinterest is the perfect place to get ideas. You can also find articles with advice on how to answer hard interview questions.

3. Create a board featuring your job expertise and skills. Especially if you do any design work, Pinterest is a great place to show it off.  If you are not in a design position, here are some other ideas of what to post. Did you set up or coordinate a volunteer event? Post pictures from that event. Did the company you work for win award because of something you did? Share their website (if they featured the award on their website) and talk about it!
