The visual powerhouse for creative people
How often to post
Once or twice a day
What to post Photos of your ultra-stylised desk space, video clips of your latest animation or Boomerangs of a panel you organised. Keep captions clean by putting hashtags in your first comment instead. When you do add tags, go for ones used by influencers in your area (e.g., for fashion, try #OOTD).
Who to follow
Folks you know and those you want to know. That includes people in hiring positions. Search for them via hashtags that combine the company name + life or people.
How to comment
Comments rule on Instagram. Just be judicious. ‘If someone posts only once a week, don’t comment on every single one,’ says Adrian Granzella Larssen, editorat-large of the career site The Muse.
Your profile should retain an authentic sense of you. Use Insta Stories to get personal and take followers through your day. Stories don’t need to be totally polished (they last for only 24 hours), but if you want to let your hair all the way down, use the settings tool to ‘Hide My Story From’ potential bosses.
