#HireFriday Hash Tag on Twitter has changed the landscape of Twitter for job seekers.
Now thanks to the invention #HireFriday Hash Tag Twitter is working for job seekers. The #Hire Friday hash tag has gained significant momentum thanks to support from Social Media Guru’s like Chris Brogan.
I’m about helping people so I don’t mind gving full credit to a competitor job search training Margo Rose for the invention of the #HireFriday
You don’t have a Twitter account to benefit from the #HireFriday hashtag just follow along at http://search.twitter.com by putting in your title and/or city with the hash tag #HireFriday and if you see a job that interests you click on it to apply.
If you are on Twitter then you definetly want to participate to maximize your exposure. Here are some suggested guidelines on what to Tweet about from Margo herself.
If you don’t have time to follow along all day on Friday you can use the free tool SocialOomph to get email alerts when someone tweets about a job that matches your keywords.

Get More Done in Your Job Search with a Buddy
Get More Done in Your Job Search with a Buddy – Register Here
I recently read this article about how you can get more done at work with a work buddy.
It seems a “work buddy” would be a great asset to help you get more done and stay on track in your job search.
If you have you are interested in a “Job Search Buddy” post a comment on this blog post with a link to your LinkedIn profile. If you see someone below that you would like to Buddy Up with contact them through LinkedIn.
If enough people are interested in this, I will put together a free workshop on how to best work together in your job search.
I have a special bonus for the first 10 people to leave a comment below.
I took my daughter to see the new movie Ramona and Beezus this weekend not expecting much more then bonding time and a few laughs.
The story is about 2 sisters and how they deal with Dad getting laid off. It is very insightful into the children’s perspective, sometimes we never know what they are going through.
This movie is a MUST SEE if you have kids and are out of work like so many of us…you may even find the ending inspirational but thats just gravy.
I often say the worst part of job loss is the “Fear of Letting Your Family Down” and this movie has this same theme.
Share with us below what you feel is the worst emotional impact of job loss?
Enjoy the lesson and the laughs.
Helping One Person at a Time,
C-Level Executives, VP Marketing, VP Sales, or any other professions – Find Jobs on LinkedIn & Google with BeFoundJobs.com. Recruiters are looking for you online right now with Marketing jobs, Sales Jobs, and Executives jobs but they can’t find you if you are not in the right places where these recruiters are looking for on LinkedIn and Google.
I’m going to keep this short and sweet because I know that your time is your most valuable commodity when it comes to looking for a job.
How would you like it if everything you needed in life came looking for you instead of you always having to be chasing after it? No, I’m not talking about the so-called “Secret Laws of Attraction,” but I am about to show you how to have your dream job find you fast.
If you’ve been feeling like looking for a job is a full time job, then this might be the most important information you’ve heard all year.
My name is Greig Wells, and I’m an executive recruiter and founder of BeFoundJobs and here’s what I’ve got for you: two insider secrets from the recruiting industry that have helped hundreds of people across all industries and all levels put themselves into the right path so they can be found by the people that are looking for them who have their dream jobs.
Here’s what these two insider secrets will do for you. Rather than you spending hours every week online looking for a job, I’ll show you how in just a few minutes you can get your profile and your resume onto the front page of Google, and the front page of LinkedIn, so that people who are looking for you with your dream job can find you first, and find you fast.
Here is what I want you to do next. Just input your info on the right, just put your name and email address in the box, and click on the button that says “Get instant access now” and you’ll immediately have free access to the information about how to be found on Google and LinkedIn.
If you’re not on Google Page One or LinkedIn Page One you are practically invisible to the people that are looking for you with your dream job.
I bet you don’t even have your resume online. “Sure I do,” you say, “I’ve got it on all the major job boards.” Well, let me tell you something: resumes on job boards do not index to Google, they do not show up in Google results. Did you know that www.Monster.com costs $14,000 to search? Do you know how many recruiters are not paying that fee and are not looking for you on www.Monster.com and on the job boards? Do you know that it costs almost $400 per job to post to a job board?
Do you know how many companies are not using job postings anymore when they can just go to Google, and go to LinkedIn, and find people for free? They’re not finding you if you’re not on those sites and you’re not prominently displayed on Page One of those sites, and it’s in my own best interests for me to teach you this so that it can be that much easier for me and my team to go out and find you, and that’s why I’m sharing this information for free with everyone.
I’m going to show you how to be found on Google, how to be found on LinkedIn − those are two first places that all recruiters go to, the reason being that there’s a mass audience that are on these, these networks cater towards recruiters, and they’re free. What are you waiting for? Take action now to find your dream job today. Just input your information to the right here and you’ll learn the two secrets.
PLEASE READ THIS
BEFORE YOU POST!!!!!
Post your brand statement in a comment below and I will critique it for you. I check in every Friday so you should check back on Monday to see your feedback.
Please make sure that your branding statement follows the formula from the training session:
You know how X is a problem in our industry?
I solve this by….
Please keep your branding statements to 3 sentences or less as longer comments slow down my review process. Your final statement should only be 3 sentences or less, so please stick to this. Please do not include any UVPs or any extra information or questions.
Keys to a Good Branding Statement
This statement is about SALES more than anything else. This isn’t where you prove your skill or intelligence. This is the part of your LinkedIn profile where you can stick in the recruiters mind. Think about famous branding statements: Just Do It. Be All That You Can Be. Etc.
These statements are generic but they are also memorable. More than anything you want to write something that the recruiter will find interesting or memorable.
Because this is a 2-3 sentence brand we don’t have to be generic. You really want to crystallize how you are special.
To do this make sure that your first sentence is a problem that needs a solution, not just something hard. “You know how it is hard to run up an escalator? You know how companies find it hard to make more money?” These are not problems. These are just things that are a little bit hard. They are smaller than problems, therefore your solution has less value. The bigger the problem the more valuable the solution.
In the solution to the problem, you want to do two things for the reader. You want to crystallize how you actually solve the problem and you want to use emotional language. The clearer your explanation the more the reader knows you are an expert. The emotional words are because this is sales. You want them to remember you and without emotional language our branding statements become DRY.
Check Spelling and Grammar!
Please take the time to check your spelling and grammar. Sometimes I can’t even tell what you mean if you misspell the wrong word. When someone reads your profile on LinkedIn and you have a misspelled word in the first sentence, it will really hurt your chances of getting that phone call.
Do not use / This slash is just an excuse to jam together 2 sentences or ideas. Every time this appears in a branding statement it leads to trouble. Don’t use the / no matter how tempting it may be. It’s a sign that you are trying to use 2 ideas where you should be using only 1.
Missed the Training?
If you missed the Career Branding Training session, or just want to review the material again, there is a recording of the training in the membership site.
If you need access to the membership site, just email me and I will grant access.
Examples of Great Branding Statements:
“You know how educational publishers are struggling to catch up with converting their print content to ebooks?
I solve this by re-engineering their print-focused processes, where they write content once and reuse them multiple times for delivery outputs like print, website and ebooks.”
