Another exciting educational opportunity fell into our laps recently when I was asked to be a guest expert on Career Moxie Radio, an online radio program hosted by Career Moxie owners and HR professionals Allison Grace and Tiffany Crenshaw. The focus of the particular session I was asked to participate in was on how to use social media and the Internet to launch a new career.
Social Media to Aid in Employment
Each show consists of a conversation between a Career Moxie listener who writes in with a problem, the hosts, and a guest expert who offers tips and suggestions for how the problem might be solved. In our case, we had a wonderful person named Douglas who wanted to know how he could use his LinkedIn profile and blog (http://chicagopinot.wordpress.com) to move from a position as an administrative assistant to a career in the wine industry.
Listen to Our Conversation
You can listen to the full program below to hear how I used examples such as Gary Vaynerchuk of Wine Library TV fame to explain how to use the web to find and build an audience, and how that audience could help present Douglas as someone wine-focused organizations and businesses would want to take a look at connecting to!
What Else Could Douglas Do?
