How IT Pros Can Use Pinterest for Career Growth
Pinterest launched in 2010, and since then I have kept my eyes on its growth and how people are using it for sharing and posting visual content. I never thought that the visual aspect of industry news in the enterprise IT space would take off on this social network, which is mostly known for sharing recipes, crafts and other media that lends itself to compelling images more than the enterprise IT space.
But this post really gives some great reasons why Pinterest makes sense as a place for IT professionals to spend time:
- Find and follow influencers – they’ve had 3 years to find their way to the platform. Now there’s on Pinterest, and you should see what they’re up to here, just as you do on Twitter or LinkedIn.
- Pin helpful articles and books – you can post an article link and Pinterest will find a related graphic/image in that post to use as the main image.
- Find useful infographics – It seems to me that 2013 is the year of the infographic – there’s no shortage of them on Pinterest!
- Track information on specific topics – just use Pinterest’s search function to find helpful articles in the area of enterprise IT that interests you most.
- Webinars and events – TED Talks is on Pinterest, for example.
- Get career and talent search help
