Everyone knows that the best way to get a job is to leverage your network. And almost everyone knows that social media is a great way to build your network . But many of you are making lots of social media mistakes. I know because so many people tell me that social media is a waste of their time.

Back in those halcyon days of high school my BFF Shannon started talking about getting a tattoo. A nice big one that no doubt was intended to shock her parents, get her officially banned from church, and seal her social identity as a true rebel. I remember briefly thinking how cool it would be to get one, too. That fantasy lasted a whole three minutes. While visions of Led Zeppelin’s Swan Song angel may have briefly danced in my head (yes, I also thought I was a rebel) there was this little voice of reason that chose at that moment to scream rather loudly “DON’T DO ITTTTT!” Yeah, I wasn’t much of a rebel after all.
