Right now Pinterest is the second fastest growing social media site on the Internet, so if you aren’t on it, go check it out. However if you are already addicted to pinning desert recipes and exercise tips, take some time to pin for your job search as well.

Start by turning your resume into a portfolio. Create boards based off of your work experience, awards, accomplishments, degrees, certificates and even your hobbies and interests. We do however recommend you stay away from controversial topics like politics.

Next create a board that showcases the professional organizations that you are involved with. Make sure to describe any committees or offices you may have held.

Then find the companies you want to work for. Small and large companies figured out the sales and marketing value of Pinterest early on. By following these company boards, you can learn a lot about each company’s culture, focus and overall brand. These insights can help you stand above other applicants.
