I recently watched ‘The Start Up Kids’, a documentary about young entrepreneurs and their journeys to evolving their companies. There was one guy that stood out to me, Brian Wong.
He is one of the founders of ‘Kiip’ a mobile network in which you can gain real rewards for virtual achievements.
He is also the youngest person ever to receive venture capital funding, beating Mark Zuckerberg by a year! In his interview he says how he started off by emailing and how with the use of this was able to reach the unreachable. Wong got the attention of people who without social platforms would not have been able to get in contact with and through hard work and dedication, Wong eventually got offered a job. I think this just goes to show the importance of social media.
Did you know 94% of recruiters rely on social media for their process? In this day and age, it is vital whether we are contacting old friends or reaching out for that new golden opportunity, the world is now at your fingertips. As Wong said, ‘This is the Culture of Listening’ with this in mind Wong has inspired me to share with you my top 5 tips on using social media to land that dream job.
