Find A Dream Job Using New Media Platform Effectively

job listing online tips

We are now at a time when unemployment is a big issue for youth, Govt jobs in Bengal are shedding down, on the other hand, private sector opening has become more competitive than ever before. So to find a solution most of the students (who feel they are creative) seek admission in professional Media, Animation or Art and Crafts Govt. colleges(mainly) with the hope of landing a job. It is from my experience in this creative cum academics profession, I can give you the inside view of what most of the students go through after admission. The first year or two is like a honeymoon period of their life, with all hopes and belief (as they were told by the academic counsellor that they will be starting their career with handsome salary once they complete the course at the cost of lakhs of money), as they reach to their final year of the institute or college, when the emi’s are almost given; most of the students and their parents then realise that job is not the sole responsibility of the placement department (a better way to say: the promise given to them was an admission gimmick done by the beautiful looking councillors – well they get paid for that ).
So now what, apart from repenting or mourning, there is something more you can do to find a solution, I am here to help you out. You can still find jobs following my procedures and doing your bit, here is what you need to do.

an about page on social profile can help to get a job

Take a good help and utilize the power of new media for your career, in fact you can make yourself brand online. A fresher should update their profiles very neat and clearly in various job portals, and to make your life comfortable most of these portals have mobile apps which will help you to keep a track on job openings. It is from my long observation to say that organizations also look for how comfortable you are on social media platforms, so it is very important how professionally you craft your social platforms starting with a great bio or an about page.

So below I have chalked out some practices you can follow, it has paid off for me along with many of my students I teach  – same can happen to you as well::

Take a note and make use of personal networks::

Undoubtedly alumni or fellow serious of your college do come very helpful, they are a better source to tap into when looking for an internship programme or job guidance. Social media comes very useful helping you to get touch with them. Last year my brother used this network to get in touch with his seniors who were very helpful guiding him to choose a better organization for his internship programme, where he own successfully placed at Mumbai.

Enlist yourself on job search portals & keep it up-to-date::

 

“An important step for fresher is to create an account on job search portals like Naukri, Monster etc. and keep them updated while they are at college,” said Mr. Somnath De ( my fellow colleague ) – placement advisor at a media institute of Kolkata.

Bookmarking sites or even downloading a few trusted job website like Shine, Naukri, Monster, Times Jobs etc. can be very useful for your job opportunity as these are highly recommended by professionals and widely used domains, but along with it spend some time to update profiles time to time.

“Downloading a few trusted jobs portal apps on your android device is an excellent way to monitor over job openings”, says Tanmoy Bose one of my students who got appointed by an e-commerce firm as a designer a year back & he understood  the importance.

Stand out of the crowd by creating an online bio or portfolio::

I believe almost everyone knows what is a C.V. (or the rest will come to know just before interviews I guess … laughs) but how many of you have an online personalised portfolio that will be 24 hrs a day live, readily available to all recruiter looking for a candidate just like you. To some, it may also be the first time term they heard of. Well, digital resumes are getting popularity over the time.

Well, I am technically live always through my website www.abhirupsblog.com to any of my clients, students or be it a new recruiter looking for an experienced employee. What have you planned for yourself?

If you take my suggestion use your time now a write a professional bio. take help of your teacher or guardians who knows how to guide you make a great appealing resume. Especially to all my students, friends, readers who belong to the creative field, try to add a few things extra – be creative and unique (but clean) and showcase your work samples or creative presentations for video editing students or even portfolios for photography students or graphic designers alongside with bio data. It adds more power to your resume, better the chance for a job interview call.

Suggested platform to choose from::

1. For Non-Techy creative personal
About me or Weebly or Tumblr (if you are a novice in technology & developing tools) these are easy to build a digital platform to make great looking online resumes.

2. For Techy (by chance) along with creative talents
Bloggers or WordPress.com (use the links to create one for yourself) can be of great help to a semi tech savvy for building a personal website/portfolio.

Experts in website development can also build their own self-hosted website via wordpress.org as well, as like my own website.

Create and maintain a LinkedIn Profile(the network for professionals)::

You may not realise, but this is the first place employer’s look for the suitable candidate. Some of my fellow colleagues also feel that LinkedIn is a go-to social networking site for business personalities as well.

Steps to follow to create a professional looking profile on LinkedIn:

You need to have a well-written bio data, along with it put a high-quality profile picture(which is not a selfie or party photograph). You need to add a cover picture that will explain what you’re offering to prospective recruiters (you can use simple graphics to illustrate).
It is a common belief of many people that the more you add information the better it becomes, it’s not true for your resume, please avoid posting things which don’t contribute to your professional persona (like a party photograph doesn’t serve any purpose to your professional network isn’t it so?  So better not to post that event visual on your LinkedIn timeline).
Keep updating your profile time to time, a fresh profile will always give you a better chance.

Social media professional groups have lot to offer if managed smartly::

Did you know that social platforms like FacebookGoogle PlusLinkedIn have groups or communities where professionals communicate and learn from each other, not only skill exchange take place but jobs are also often shared among like-minded community peoples, and to that the most exciting I bet you’ll love is it’s free to join or sign-up. If you are still not a part of such professional groups you are definitely missing out opportunity every day without even realising.

Suggested groups to follow:
Media Jobs Daily (a Facebook group where people post job openings and vacancies)
LinkedIn also has various groups some are mentioned here: MarketingProfs, Digital Marketing or FilmsDirectors etc

Always remember your email id is the most important entity while interacting with those industry people, so it has to be more professional looking – email id like funkyajay@gmail.com looks clumsy and it adds a bad image about yourself, so I will say a big no to such id’s – make professional looking once like yourname@gmail.com, or yourname@customdomain.com (if you own an online resume portal – you can readily make one)

Always remember the more you interact, the stronger the relationship, which will lead you close to your job opportunities.

I hope these techniques will help you to find a job easily than before, if you think any more point to add with this article that has already worked for you, feel free to mention them in the comment section below this post, I would love to attribute your name and add it on to this journal.
