Doing all the talking. Yes, Twitter is a great place to let people know what you’re doing. But if that’s all you’re doing, it’s not going to work. “You can’t just go on Twitter and type in the title of your blog post and link to it. Or you can’t just say, ‘Oh, look what’s new here.’ It has to be a conversation. And that’s what’s so amazing about Facebook and Twitter—that you can engage with your audience. You shouldn’t just post something and go on with your day,” Gregg says.

Words are key. Your resume should include as many relevant keywords as possible. Avoid using general terms like “good communication skills” and “team player.” Instead, use keywords that match exactly what the employer is looking for. For example, if you’re pursuing a career in marketing, words like “research” and “promotions” will jump off the page and of course show up more on job search engines. Don’t waste precious resume space by using overused words that don’t mean much.
