How Leveraging Social Media Launched His Career! Learn How…

This is a guest post by Sam Kelner, Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Minneapolis Development Associate, who credits Social Media for his own job success.
Ben was a frustrated do-gooder. He had a day job in finance. But crunching numbers all day fed his bank account, not his soul. He wanted to work for a company that promoted the values he lived his life by, but resume after resume wentout . . . and no bites. A career strategist made him aware of the importance of his social media to build the “Ben brand.”
Within two weeks, Ben was contacted by a headhunter and soon had the job he wanted. “This work is much more satisfying,” he says. “I never would have got it without upping my social media brand.”
