The Social Media Experiment: Part 2

So in 6 weeks I found a new position at GreyDuck Technology.  GreyDuck is a Lotus/Domino consulting company based in Minnesota. I will be doing a lot of the same things I did at teamstudio, Administration, Development, Health-checks, Etc. So if you need help in your environment let me know.

I was partially Social media that got me the position. It was from my network of LinkedIn contacts.  Social Media, primarily LinkedIn, did get me some visibility into companies that were hiring. I upgraded my LinkedIn account to Jobseeker and get an increase in profile views by 2000%  (Yes 2000 not a typo). So that alone was worth the upgrade cost. Many of the contacts were not relevant though. Many were people trying to fill jobs that I had some experience in, but not enough to do it full time.

I reached out to my network and was suggested by a contact to reach out to GreyDuck. Well as you can guess, I am in my third week working for them.

The best advice I can give is be actively engaged on LinkedIn. Whether you are looking for work, or looking to reach out to new customers, it is the place to be.
