  • Thank you Archinect!

    To follow up on my last post on social media networking, I would like to add that this technique for job seeking really works. A few weeks ago I was contacted by a company that asked if I was interested in learning about the interior designer position they had. The manager claimed to have seen my profile on archinect. I was so thrilled and surprised about it. It really goes to show that we should really use all of the resources available to us.

    Technology and social media is becoming part of our daily lives, whether is drawing plans, watching movies, grocery shopping or, yes, looking for jobs. While some people may prefer the old job seeking ways of cold calling, walking ins, and so on, sending emails and posting your portfolio online work just as well nowadays. So why limit yourself? Be creative and make easier for potential employers to find you. Research high traffic job board websites, create a profile and post your portfolio on their sites. 

    Opportunities come from where you least expect, ^_^.
