The Impact of Technology on Job Search and Google Book Search Technology
presented by Jeff Moore and Jon Orwant
Tuesday, February 20, 2007
6- 8 PM
Jeff is giving an overview of how people find jobs these days. He recruits for Google and admits to using some of the social networking sites to local potential job candidates.
If a company is growing, recruiting becomes a very high priority.
Some of his tips (in my own words):
- Get out there
- Manage your public profile
- Don’t wait for a job to find you
- Build and use your network
- Network with alumni
- Leverage your network
- Be careful about what you do online, how you act during your interview, etc.
- Don’t be shy about asking people about their jobs
I guess I can’t actually tell you about Jon’s Google Book Search talk because his slides are labeled confidential.
Addendum 3/12: This talk was at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, not Harvard University. 35-225 is an MIT building and room designation. Harvard’s buildings usually have names, not numbers. I guess when I tweaked this entry, I forgot to explicitly say the talk was at MIT.
