There’s a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth. ~ Maya Angelou
There’s a lot of online advice out there telling jobseekers that if you’re truly serious about job search, you MUST get yourself into the online social media for job search scene.Studies tell us, they warn, that employers more than ever use social media when looking to fill jobs. So if you aren’t visible online, you may miss out or not get hired at all.Well … there is some truth to that. But there’s also more to the picture.Some of the advice is based on surveys that tell us that a vast majority of employers (at least those interviewed) say they most definitely use social media at some point during the hiring process. Therefore, they conclude, you not only need to use social media to get a job nowadays, but you need to be very actively engaged in it if you hope to be found.One of my pet peeves is using studies to draw inaccurate conclusions.
