About this video
Social Media can allow you to make really valuable connections that you would not otherwise be making. “It also enables people to see your work first-hand, so you can actually raise awareness of your work with people, you can actually speak to people, you can show them your work in lots of different ways, not just in the PDF of your article or in the little extract of your book that might be on the publisher’s website. You can do that in lots of different, innovative ways and creative ways that might really stimulate people and that may make them aware of you”
Remember – no one is going to you a job just because you are on twitter. And no university will hire you just because you have a blog. However using social media can make people aware of you, which can open up opportunities, to showcase your work, to find others in your field and to potentially even collaborate.
