In some professions, having a good Instagram profile and following can help your job
Instagram is a visual platform that is ideal for any job that produces visual content. While you should have a legitimate website where you can display a portfolio of your work,
Instagram can give you another platform to highlight your abilities.
Instagram can aid in
the job search for graphic designers, photographers, journalists, digital marketers,
illustrators, web developers, and many more.
Instagram can support the growth and development of your freelance business.
Showcase the projects you're working on, discuss the clientele you've worked with, and
even think about using Instagram ads to attract new customers.
Make a Business Instagram Account
Whether or not you currently have an Instagram account, think about opening a new
one just for work-related purposes. This can help you keep your personal and
professional lives apart; picture LinkedIn as Instagram. Here's how to polish up your
How to Complete a Profile?
Instagram has the potential to be a personal branding tool. Your profile should be
consistent with other professional social media profiles you may have and make it obvious what skills and qualifications you can offer prospective employers. Make sure your new account is public before anything else. This enables everyone,
whether or not they are following you, to view your profile. You want your profile to be
accessible to potential employers and colleagues in your field.
Next, be sure to include a headshot-style photo; your LinkedIn profile photo would be great. Include a website link as well. This might be a link to your personal website, online portfolio, LinkedIn profile, or Twitter account. You have 150 characters in the bio section
to introduce yourself. Discussing your current position or talents, the type of new
position you're seeking, or a list of your professional hobbies may be an excellent place
The best Instagram posts
If you don't use social media correctly, it can harm your career. Use your distinct,
professional Instagram account to showcase images that are important to your career.
Did you attend a conference relating to your industry? Take a photo, tag the conference,
and provide a succinct caption. Did you create a website for a contract job? Screenshot
Although it could be tempting, think about whether you want your potential employer
to see any intimate images before posting them. Save them for your personal account if
it doesn't feel right, or don't post anything at all.
Remember to use the IGTV and Instagram Stories capabilities.
For your account, it can
make sense to make videos discussing a project you're working on or to share a video
from a company you follow. Your profile and personal brand will both be enhanced by keeping a consistent publishing schedule.
How to Find and Use Hashtags?
Use the hashtags that may be searched to locate other people who you could add to
your network, businesses, and even open positions. This is a terrific approach to finding
businesses and positions you weren't previously aware of.
Consider using some of these well-liked hashtags in your job search:
#remotework \s#remotejobs \s#jobs \s#jobsearch \s#jobsearchtips
Focus on perusing the best hashtags for your particular career field as well. For instance,
if you work as a marketing or a virtual assistant, you might find them useful:
#marketing #marketingmanager #marketingmanagerlife #virtualassistant
#virtualassistant #virtualassistantjobs #virtualassistantlife
Use relevant industry terms as hashtags to describe the images you publish.
instance, if you went to a crucial marketing workshop or conference, you might submit a
picture of the occasion and use the hashtags #marketing and #(nameofconference) or
another hashtag that the conference is already using.
