Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEB -

Job seek­ing

Pin­ter­est is a new way to cre­ate a vis­ual rep­re­sen­ta­tion of your re­sume or pro­fes­sional ex­pe­ri­ence. Cre­ate boards for your work ex­pe­ri­ence, awards and ac­com­plish­ments, de­grees or classes, a port­fo­lio of your work, and even hob­bies and in­ter­ests.

Mar­ket­ing

If you have a Face­book page for your busi­ness, you might con­sider Pin­ter­est, too. Pin­ter­est is cur­rently re­spon­si­ble for more traf­fic to sites than ei­ther Google+ or Face­book, although it also lets you link your board to your busi­ness Face­book page or Twit­ter ac­count.

In­spi­ra­tion

Artists, mu­si­cians, jew­ellers, fash­ion, graphic and in­te­rior de­sign­ers use Pin­ter­est to seek in­spi­ra­tion and share new work. With a lot of how- to posts and in­no­va­tive tips, re­search­ing an idea can be an il­lus­trated, vir­tual brain­storm.

Travel

Blog­ging can be a lot of ef­fort while you’re in tran­sit, but this pin­board for­mat makes it eas­ier, al­low­ing you to pin ar­ti­cles, pho­tos, on­line pam­phlets and ho­tel or mu­seum web­sites that you want to visit or have vis­ited. Then, when you re­turn, you can also post your own pho­tos on your board.

Cook­ing

Food­ies re­joice in the vis­ual doc­u­men­ta­tion of their culi­nary en­deav­ours. Pin­ter­est is also a handy on­line lo­ca­tion to store recipes for favourite dishes, pho­tos of food prepa­ra­tion and pre­sen­ta­tion. Don’t browse while hun­gry, though.

Teach­ing

▼Pin­ter­est is a su­perb vis­ual re­source where peo­ple share pic­tures, videos and web­sites. You can search for pins with a spe­cific theme or sub­ject, for ex­am­ple ‘‘ pe­ri­odic ta­ble’’ or ‘‘ con­victs’’, mak­ing it an ideal re­source for teach­ers to browse pinned items that link through to orig­i­nal sources, pro­vid­ing in­spi­ra­tion for teach­ing and les­son plans.
