Social Media

Employers are checking out candidates on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites. Social media when used the wrong way can backfire and jeopardize a job offer or even your current job. It’s important to be careful and consider what you shouldn’t do, as well as what you should do, when using social media to job search. The information you post on these sites can be used to determine if you get that summer internship or permanent position.

When you're looking for a job or positioning yourself for career growth, it's important to have an online presence where you can showcase your skills and experience. LinkedIn is the #1 professional networking site used to develop your professional online presence during your job search process.

Getting started on your professional profile on Linkedin is easy.
