Social Networking: Make It Work For You

Social Media is Everywhere!

Although we live in a tech-savvy world, it is still important to use discretion with technology, especially when it comes to career plans and aspirations.

For information and tips on developing a professional social media presence, view:

Facebook (www.facebook.com)

"Like" the Career Center on Facebook

Edit your profile

  • Clean up the content on your profile
  • Keep negativity (employer and personal life) offline
  • Monitor comments, photos (and tags) made by friends
  • Carefully consider privacy settings
  • Don't mention your job search if you're still employed

LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com)

Create a LinkedIn Registration

  • Currently 161,000,000+ users (as of March 2012)
  • Start building your profile

Use LinkedIn to:

  • Stay current on career-related trends and information
  • Network with alumni, employers and more
  • Find information on potential internship and job opportunities

Twitter (www.twitter.com)
