Somersworth, NH, USA (July 31, 2014) -- Michelle Dumas, founder of Distinctive Career
Services LLC (http://www.distinctiveweb.com) career and resume consultants for
professionals and executives for nearly 20 years, has completed training as an SEO+
Social Networking Strategist by The Academies, a career coaching certification training
group for human resource, employment services, and recruiting professionals.

With the designation as an SEO+ Social Networking Strategist, Dumas has proven
competence in the use of the latest Google+ and social media tactics on behalf of her
career clients. Google+ grew 58 percent and now has more than 500 million active users
by the close of 2013, making it an important tool to be incorporated in an online career
management strategy. To earn designation as an SEO+ Social Networking Strategist
requires candidates to complete a six-week training course covering the inner workings of
Google+ and how to apply the social network to aid job seekers. The course includes tips
for developing a compelling Google+ profile, how to organize information for more
targeted interaction, and how to build online engagement.

"Social media is becoming increasingly important in job search strategy," said Dumas.
"For some time now we've been assisting our clients with promoting their personal brand
and building an online identity, with an emphasis on optimizing LinkedIn profiles. Google+
has a huge base of engaged users and is playing a more important role in a
comprehensive social media job search strategy. With this new training we will now be
able to help our clients incorporate Google+ along with other social media channels as
key components in managing their online presence and landing their next job."
