I had the opportunity to write an article for Fast Company magazine on the subject of Employment Branding. It’s called “How to Make Your Company a Talent Magnet, Even in Tough Times.”

Top Talent Doesn’t Job Search Online

In the article, I make a case the best-of-the-best aren’t obsessing over their LinkedIn profiles. Instead, they are busy doing work they like at jobs they love. So, getting them to ditch their current gigs for one with your company is going to take some strategic marketing. My solution: blogging. I encourage you to ponder the story I tell in the article from two standpoints: How can employers do a better job telling their employment stories? How can job seekers get better at using blogs to find ideal job opportunities? Everyone knows the number one way to land a job/fill a position is networking. And, in today’s wonderful online world, we have one of the most amazing tools for making networking happen virtually. I’m not talking about social media - I’m talking about blogging. It’s the storytelling that facilitates the matching process. If you’re a recruiter, how do you use blogging to find top talent? If you're a job seeker, how are you using blogging to connect with top employers?

According to a recent study on college employment, 43% of the nation's full-time college undergraduates and 81% of part-time undergraduates worked while getting a degree. Not surprisingly, time shortage is one of the biggest reasons for students dropping out before completing their degree. So how do you make sure that you stay the course?

Whether you're new to LinkedIn or you're a seasoned user, connecting with new people can be a challenge, especially when you're not sure what to write in your LinkedIn invitation. You might be tempted to use the generic "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn" template, but beware! By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.

TikTok, the popular social media platform that allows users to make and share short-form videos, is not just for individuals looking for funny and entertaining content.
