Pinterest as a career tool

“I thought Pinterest was pretty much the domain of women in their 20s who like sharing photos of fashion, food and wedding dresses,” begins Forbes contributor Nancy Collamer’s article The Five Ways Pinterest Can Boost Your Career, and I confess I shared that sentiment.
The demographic is skewed older than that, though it is primarily female. But there’s business going on there, especially among the creative trades.
Career coach Collamer outlines five ways jobseekers in general can use Pinterest:
* Researching a potential career.
* Learn about companies that you want to work for.
* Get advice from career experts.
* Build a visual resume.
* Create a project board to get freelance work.
