Getting Creative with HAPPO: A Chat Recap
Posted by JasMollica
On Thursday, May 2, public relations pros and job seekers gathered for the #HAPPO chat on Twitter. The topic this time around was “Creative Job Search Strategies.” The job market can be a tricky place to maneuver, so the more advice you have, the better off you could be.
Here are some great tips from pros that took part in the chat.
Jason Ginenthal’s point is a terrific one to keep in your job search/application quiver. Show an employer you “get” what they are doing.
This isn’t asking to “pick your brain.” What Abbie Fink is saying here is that it’s a good idea to get to know someone. You never know where it could lead.
Believe it or not, there are hiring managers that are NOT on social. Keep Alyssa’s tweet in mind when applying for a job.
Talk about being creative! I included this to show you that Richie was thinking outside the box. Sometimes that is what it takes when looking/applying for a job.
This point from Anne discusses LinkedIn invites/connections. Don’t just go for what LinkedIn gives you. Personalize your message and show you care enough to connect.
Do you have other creative job search strategies? Let us know in the comments and thanks to everyone for participating on May 2. As always, use the hashtag #HAPPO if you have a job or tip you want to share.
About JasMollica"It's never too late to have a life and it's never too late to change one." That's something I tell students, friends, and family all the time. After living and working in New York City, I took my own advice in 2004, switched my career from the television/radio industry and got into public relations. Now, I spend my days as a PR/social media marketing consultant and get inspired daily. It's been a good ride, so far. But the car has plenty of gas left. I hope you'll join along in this guy's journey!
