How to announce your job change on social media

Using social media to announce about your job change is an important step. But one also has to be careful in their approach.

Here are some tips for doing it the right way.

If you are leaving a company or joining a new company, make sure to finalise the details with your company first.

Once the official paperwork is done, you can announce it to your networks over social media.

You don't have to explain your reasons for leaving a company or the details of your new job.

Giving a lot of information on such big decisions over social media is not a good idea.

You need to know how to balance what is important to be said and what is not.

Update the information about the job change across all your social media profiles on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin.

If you have already started with the new job, add your details like the job title, company name and job responsibilities.

Your online details let people know who you are and understand your new position and skills. So make sure to keep them updated.

Connect with your new co-workers online. It is a good way to know your team and let them get to know you before you start the job.
