At Advanced Resources, we love exploring the world of social media and how it intersects with the world of talent and careers. It might seem hard to believe, but yes, even in the Facebook-Twitter-Tumblr-LinkedIn era, there’s still room for yet another successful, popular social media site. That site is Pinterest.
If you’re already a “pinner,” you know about Pinterest. If it’s new to you, Pinterest is a hot new social media website that provides a way for users to save and display ideas on virtual pinboards. Users have the option to follow all of their friends' boards or only specific ones. The follow system works just like Twitter, so you can also "unfollow" certain friends or boards whenever you want. And people can share their finds with friends.
Pinterest has been around since March of 2010, but its meteoric rise really started taking place last fall. It’s since grown to be the fastest Web site in history to break the 10-million-visitors-a-month threshold. While many followers started to use Pinterest for planning their weddings, decorating their homes, and cooking, the practical uses for the site are growing and unlimited.
Advanced Resources is pleased to introduce our own Pinterest page, which is geared toward helping job seekers succeed in their job search. You’ll find interviewing style for men and women, books we love, and tips and tools for job search success. New as of this past weekend, we will constantly add to our boards and hope you’ll find the ideas to be helpful. And we’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas!
If you’re new to Pinterest, email us at [email protected] and we’ll send you an invite to join Pinterest. Once you're on Pinterest, the Advanced Resources page can be found and followed by searching for "advresources".
As far as we know, right now we’re the very first staffing firm to leverage Pinterest to help our candidates succeed. We’re excited to bring our clients and candidates yet another innovation in the world of staffing.
Come follow us, and as they say, “Happy Pinning!”
