How to use social media to get your next job

In this week’s career chat, we talked with Randy Essex, senior editor for local news at the Cincinnati Enquirer/Cincinnati.com and Kentucky Enquirer/NKY.com.

Essex uses social networking sites to find people for jobs in his newsroom, and job opportunities have come to him through the same channels. Social media is now one of  the main ways job information is shared. During the chat, Essex explained how to best use social media to network, market yourself, and find job opportunities.
