When you head out to watch your favorite team play, watch a movie, or catch a theatre performance, the set-up of the venue can be just as important as the event itself. You want clear lines of sight, good acoustics, and to be situated in a place that makes you feel part of the action, not shoved off to the side. Venues for work meetings are even more important, because - let’s face it - three houristock_000016007019xsmalls of talking about quarterly profits and projections just isn’t as exciting as Bruce Willis blowing stuff up while wisecracking. Because of this, you need to ensure your meeting space makes people want to sit up, pay attention, and get involved.

woman working on laptop #14With Social Media so hot today, it’s important to add this valuable and interpersonal dimension to your hunt for a new or better job. Here are seven techniques to help you piggyback to a paycheck by means of Social Media:

Use this description as your foundation for your Social Media communications to follow.

2. Start a blog on a topic that falls within your description of yourself. Use any of the popular blog sites, such as Wordpress or Blogger. Make a commitment to add a new entry to this blog at least twice a week.
