can't see the forest for the trees

What we have gathered together to consider in this online forum is how to get a job using the Internet. Today's tip/trick is utilizing the new(ish) online sensation - Pinterest. For those of you who dig picture collections and digital functionality, Pinterest is your huckleberry. This online gallery organizes people's image collections into different category boards. As you might have already guessed, you "pin" pictures you are "interested" in to different category boards in your collection. Are you interested in vintage fashion? Pin your pix and pour over others postings. Can't get enough concept cars? There's a board for you too. But lets not forget what WE are interested in, say it with me, folks: employment! You can create your Pinterest Employment Board at no cost and relatively quickly. By signing up and uploading shots of your portfolio, employers will be able to see you're tech savvy, in on the digital trends, and an accomplished working professional. Check out this video review of the digital employment resource. Note, it's part of a series, so drop in on minute 1.46 to get the quick 411. Good luck on pinning your way to a paycheck.
