Nicole Williams, Career Expert at LinkedIn, Shares Her Social Media Tips

Nicole-Williams-blogNicole Williams has been LinkedIn’s resident career expert since 2011. This best-selling author also has her own lifestyle brand, WORKS by Nicole Williams, which offers lifestyle content for career-minded women in their 20s and 30s.

In our latest So What Do You Do column, Williams talks about the best way to get your LinkedIn profile noticed and shares her tips on using social media as a professional:

It’s consistency now that’s really so important. It’s ensuring that all your social media platforms are sending the same professional message. Think about what your professional brand is: What kind of tone do you want to have, what kind of issues do you want to comment on, what kind of articles do you want to respond to? You’ve got to decide that early on, and then you’ve got to kind of have that theory in place so that you are using social media in an integrated fashion.

Media Powerhouses Dish Career Inspiration at 2014 Matrix Awards

NYWICI logoAs this week comes to a close, we can’t help but recall one of the highlights in Manhattan: The Matrix Awards.

MediaJobsDaily was front row and center (okay, more like table 8 near the stage but still…) at the Waldorf Astoria in midtown. Regardless, the annual Matrix Awards presented by New York Women in Communications did not disappoint!

After conducting red carpet interviews to be aired shortly, it was time to settle in for an afternoon of motivation and inspiration. Oh, did we mention Gloria Steinem was in the house? Along with hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb and notable names like Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah and Cynthia McFadden, in true form the luncheon was full of memorable moments and of course, quotes.

One by one as each presenter and honoree gave their speech, there’s a common thread. Persistence, dedication, setbacks, risks and overall achievements. They all had to start somewhere, they all had to earn their first byline, their first rejection and get back up on their feet again. Look at Queen Latifah who’s now a talk show host and started her career in a male-dominated industry.

That’s why their stories have so much mojo and meaning — they all have a back story. You have a back story. We all do and that’s what makes us so vibrant, interesting and  resilient.

So, without further ado, let’s check out some of the quotes and then, of course, look at the list of winners… Read more

LinkedIn CEO Ranks Number One Boss in New Glassdoor Survey

ribbonIf you could rate the CEO of your company, what percentage would you give him or her?

Per a new Glassdoor survey, Jeff Weiner, the CEO at LinkedIn has brought in a 100 percent approval rating! His employees voluntarily and anonymously posted feedback on Glassdoor and consequently rated him as the highest chief executive officer in their 2014 survey.

According to results and employee reviews, he’s known for complete transparency and clear communications. Per a CBS News piece, in December he told Knowledge@Wharton, “For me, leadership is the ability to inspire others to achieve shared objectives. For me, that’s the entire difference between leaders and managers. Managers tell people what to do. Leaders inspire them to do it.”

As for the next CEO on the list? That’s Alan Mulally from Ford. He snagged a 97 percent approval rating and has been praised for cultivating communications between various groups to work more cohesively as a team. ” Read more

In the first edition of the MediabistroTV series “What’s Your Show?” Smith and his team take us behind the scenes of “Shepard Smith Reporting.”
