Fattening Up Your Resume for Today’s Job Famine.

Unless you’ve been drunk for the past several months, you are probably aware that our economy isn’t doing so well. For recent college graduates, this probably means that getting a job will be harder than expected. But there is hope.

According to Livingston Communication’s blog The Buzz Bin, although the economy sucks, new media continues to thrive, and by highlighting your new media experience, you can rise above the rest.

Social Media Beefs Up Resumes provides five tips to bolster your resume.

1. Highlight past experiences, like your personal blog and social networking, as much as possible.

2. When you talk about social media, don’t just chat about blogs. Remember that blogging is another way of building relationships and engaging in two-way communication.

3. Check out your personal Google search results. Make sure you walk your talk.

4. Although social media experience is great, be careful not to specialize. A well-rounded resume is still important.

5. Be able to cite examples from other successful social media efforts besides your own.
