Clearly Pinterest is becoming a social media site of strong interest among consumers. The latest figures show that Pinterest now has over 10.4 million registered users, 9 million monthly Facebook-connected users, and 2 million daily Facebook users, according to Inside Network’s AppData tracking service. (via TechCrunch). Now, Sean Weinberg, COO and co-founder of RezScore, writes that the site is becoming a place for marketers to seek out new positions.
His premise makes sense: Professionals tend to gravitate to those sites most reflective of their day-to-day occupational activities—journalists, for example, like LinkedIn.
Weinberg, via Mashable, offers tips on how to tailor a resume for the Pinterest environment. The resume is important of course, well as pages from a portfolio, press clippings and any accomplishments.
Other ideas he offers include breaking the your board into different sections to reflect expertise in different areas. A public relations specialist with a focus in event planning could include "a public relations board filled with PR and marketing goodies, a media board filled with articles, news and infographics, and an event planning board full of wedding ideas, party favors and the like," he writes.
