Last Sunday, I facilitated a job search workshop providing job seekers employed, unemployed, and underemployed information to help position them better for employment. We gave away a couple of career books that each winner will enjoy. I also invited two of the blog’s contributors to participate in a panel discussion about using social media for the job search. Bianca Thompson aka “Sassy HR Girl” and Sandra Tedford were both prepared and ready to offer her perspective. Collectively and individually, she displayed expertise and candor that engaged the audience who, I think, received much value from their answers.

They addressed several questions regarding social media profiles and the use of Linked In:

  • The positive and negative use of having a profile
  • How an incomplete profile is perceived
  • What if a candidate has the right components except for his or her Linked In  profile
  • A bad profile picture? What a bad or no picture implies

There were several other questions the audience asked and overall each answer was appropriately offered.
