The American Marketing Association endorsed this blog (typos and all) for job seekers looking for alternative ways to market themselves. As the second fastest growing social media site, it’s no wonder they’re recommending Pinterest for self-job-promotion. This brings to mind yet another reason to be conservative and professional in your pinnings, should you choose to go this route. The blog recommends using Pinterest to ‘paint a picture of yourself’ for potential employers. An interesting idea, but I wonder how many employers are savvy enough to go there for information on a candidate. On the other hand, depending upon your industry using Pinterest to promote yourself could be viewed as being very innovative. Happy Pinning Job Seekers!
