The next frontier of job-hunting
How often to post
Add to your Story up to five times a day
What to post ‘Share snapshots of your workday and creative projects or career-related photos that inspire you,’ says Larssen. It’s okay to show your DJ side-hustle or your Flywheel stats – but send the ‘I’m at Mardi Gras!’ Snaps only to private friend groups, advises Miller-Merrell.
Who to follow
You might need to do external research to find people and businesses on Snapchat. Your legwork could pay off: last year, JPMorgan Chase used a graduation-themed geofilter as part of a recruiting campaign aimed at college students.
How to comment
As on other platforms, you can Chat a compliment or question in response to someone’s Snap. But even though your comments will disappear right after they’re viewed, don’t send anything you wouldn’t want to be permanent, says MillerMerrell. Never forget: Snapchat lets users screenshot everything!
Use the direct-message Chat feature to send a 10-second video or voice recording to hirers. Treat these personalised clips as mini CV boosters.
