Social Media
Is Where It's
Happening Bosco!
The annual massive
SEMA-AAPEX
gathering (say 140,000
peeps) in Las Vegas
features literally hundreds
of educational opportunities in almost any area of
the automotive business

and technical world. This
year I was particularly
interested in social media
recruiting and social
media influence overall,
since I was getting sick of
hearing about Twitter

paper resume' formats

by "digital candidate
portfolios." These
scripts can be produced
a number of ways,
including providing
tangible informational
formats on a recruiter's
website. I liked that
possibility, which would
provide a way for me
or you to retrieve the
pertinent information
you/me are particularly
interested in regarding
a candidate. Candidate
resumes can be / are
lacking, if not glorified.
Recruiters (add that
your title Mr. Manager)
can also gain additional
information by using the
links to social platforms,
where candidates post
