If you have ever used Pinterest, you will know how addictive it can be. For those who are not familiar with the site, it is a virtual pin board that allows users to “organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web.” Most people use Pinterest primarily to share recipes, fashion, home décor inspiration, party planning ideas, and all things visual, funky, and creative. As Pinterest has grown in popularity, so has its purpose. Recently, companies and job seekers have begun to use Pinterest as a job search tool.
