    These are great tips! As someone who works in a field where you MUST be up on the latest technology and social trends to even be considered, these are really important things to keep in mind. I totally agree about sending an e-mail these days–but I also usually send snail mail, too. I think a written note says a lot.

    I’ve found twitter to be a great resource to contacting and connecting with companies, and LInkedin of course, but I work for them so that could be a bias comment!

    What great advice!! I love that you say it is okay to send a follow up email. I’ve had people tell me that it is impersonal, but I think it is an efficient way to put you back in their thoughts.

    On my resume I also have a QR code that can be scanned and take you to my weebly profile.

    This is a great article! It is all about making the employer remember you and stand out! Being a twenty something can be hard because we are often not taken seriously because we are “too young”. So this has been a great article to show people how to look and act more mature so we don’t get pigeon holed as “too young”!

    Thanks for the comments! Alyssa, I agree, snail mail can be a nice way to follow up, and one that most people most likely overlook. And Shanon I have heard great things about using twitter for job search and networking, though I have not explored it too deeply (yet.) Raewyn – wow, a QR code on your resume, THAT is certainly going to make you stand out. Nice! And Ellen, I think that being twentysomething can sometimes give us an advantage in this realm, generally we are not as afraid (or shouldn’t be) to use new technology and non-traditional branding tools when networking and looking for jobs, which definitely helps look professional and very tech-savvy:)

    Thank you for the great tips! I was particularly interested the video resume portion because I have recently been thinking about entering the fashion industry. I have been trying to brainstorm ideas on how to make my resume a bit more creative (since the fashion industry allows for this) and I think a video resume would be a nice way for me to stand out. I know I am up to date with most social media platforms, which leads me to believe that a video resume might be the next step.
