I enjoyed your article and loved the video. I am a huge fan of the Millennials. In fact, I saw a show on Public Television about the authors of the book about them.
I can only attribute the ban on social media in the workplace to ignorance. It reminds me of book banning or burning in the extreme. Progress is about going forward, not backwards.
Social Media IS. It is not going away. It will change; it will continue to evolve. But it IS here to stay. I think it is a much saner approach to learn how to use it to the max and for the good.
I also refuse to accept resumes from graduating students. All I want is contact info to their social media. There are both digital and analog ways to gather their contact info.
In case you do not remember me, I am the person who served Jerry Garcia coffee but did not know it was him. We now have another connection. You and I are both mentioned on Wikipedia on the definition page for Inbound Marketing. We are cited in the Notes at the bottom of the page. You are #5 and I am #6. Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah are actually a bit further down the page.
Again thanks for the great 'thumbs up' for the millenials and social media. I loved the part about politely leaving a job interview of a company does not allow use of the new communication technology. I am with you 100%.

Excellent article! I am very impressed by Lindsey. I wrote a recent blog post on using social media in the job search aimed at those looking to breaking into the field of international education, though a lot of it can be applied to any student or recent graduate :http://www.mandysmashups.com/1/post/2012/05/guest-blog-using-social-media-in-the-job-search.html

This is just my opinion, but they have worked previously in many occassions.
1. Be Professional in Social Media - Don't post anything that can show you as an idiotic or dumbass. In other word, don't put a photo of you doing beer party or binge drinking on Facebook. Facebook has been known to be used by many HR company and it can do it.
2. Build your social media reputation - Write a blog, or post interesting article online constantly.
You have to show that what you can do is worth the employer's time. For instance, I have a facebook page for a personal cause: www.facebook.com/hepaBvirus
Small thing such as this can show you that you are social media savvy and knows how to communicate with your users/followers or target audience.
3. Linkedin & Twitter - Build your linkedin Profile & Twitter if you have not started. Many people in the industry have Linkedin for their professional connection or business purpose. Connect with your peers, co-workers or friends online. Join a Linkedin Group & participate on your interested subject - for instance, social media marketing stratregy and provide your opinion and share ideas.
Twitter - Start twitter page, write a post and follow people that interest you or organization.
I hope this helps & always smile in job interview or any job. That way, you get more positive feedbacks.
