When searching for a job, the smallest improvements can mean the difference between your resume ending up in a never-ending stack of potential candidates or in front of your future employer.

That’s why many new job seekers are taking their job hunt to social networks like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. The 5 following tips will have you attracting job interviews instead of applying for job interviews.

1. Let people know you’re looking

Thanks to social networks such as Facebook, Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn it’s very easy to let people (read: potential employers) know you’re looking for employment. To make it even easier for potential employers, specify what kind of employment you’re looking for.

This is actually a rare opportunity where you can simply list out what kind of job you would like to land and get an interested employer to write you back. Don’t forget to add a link to your resume.
