March 15, 2012

Have you jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon yet? If you haven’t, now’s a good time to start thinking about it because not only is it fun and addicting, it’s the next big tool that can help you with your job search. In case you’re unsure of where to start, we’ve come up with 6 ideas for boards that can help you with your job search.
#1. Your Industry – Whatever industry you’re looking or wanting to be in, set up a board with it’s title and start pinning! Any industry could work because you can pin products you would need for or that pertain to your job. For example, say you’re a professional dog-walker, you could pin anything from collars, leashes and other doggie products, to training books and photos of people and their dogs.
#2. Professional Dress/Appearance – What you wear and how you appear at an interview or in the office is important. To get the part, you need to look the part. If you’re going for an office or corporate job then you would pin things like suits and casual business attire along with appropriate hygiene and hairstyles. Or to keep in line with the professional dog-walker career, perhaps you would pin some good walking shoes and a t-shirt that says “I

#3. Motivation – It’s always a good idea to remember your motivation and what inspires you. Maybe it’s a quote or a picture, poster or painting. As long as it’s your type of “business appropriate” (for example you might not want to post pictures of cats for inspiration when you’re a professional dog-walker) find it and pin it!

#4. “Smart Food” – It’s as simple as it sounds… pin foods and/or recipes that give your mind and body what it needs to perform your job. For example, pinning foods that give you energy would be good for the professional dog-walker, or in this case it would be good for almost all professions!

#5. What to Bring to Interview – This board could have pins that represent your skills, as well as items you may need in the interview. So perhaps the professional dog-walker would have pins that represent responsibility, love for dogs, patience and compassion.

#6. My Qualities – This board is for pinning things you like about yourself to help keep your resilience and courage up. These pins could be anything! They could be something that represents your sense of humor, your personality, your smile…anything and everything you like about yourself to remind you that you can do it!
