HOW TO: Maintain Your Social Media Presence after Quitting Your Job

One of the traditional problems that used to face employees back in the days was keeping the contacts they have met with, obtained as customers, managed and built relationships with during their days of service, after they have quit their job.

However, the tables have turned and the times have changed and now, the bigger question is: How do employees keep their social media contacts and presence after quitting their jobs?

Based on our experience in social media, we have a few tips and pointers for you that could answer the above question and further maintain the code of ethics you have towards your company:

Create, Simplify & Connect

1. Quality Vs. Quantity:

If you are a social media addict like me, you will develop a large follower/friend base in a short time. This will be great as long as you are working for your current company but will be confusing when you decide to quit! Look for quality followers: those who retweet your tweets, interact with you, recommend you and show real interest in what you do and who you are. After you have established that, you build strong ties with those chosen ones so they can be with you whichever account you transfer to later on.
