Social Media March 2015 by Daniella Bernasconi
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest,
blogs and more, have become a popular tool to link with new and old
connections. However, more often today, recruiters are screening potential
employees through this means throughout the hiring process because of the high
level of competition. This doesn’t mean you cannot be on social media, it just
means you have to be more conscious about the content you wish to share through
these platforms and what level of privacy you are choosing for them.
For example, you can decide to keep Facebook for personal
means and LinkedIn to build a professional background. Nonetheless, you have to
realize that no matter how private the settings are inappropriate content may
still be visible to potential employers. LinkedIn has grown to be an excellent
resource for networking and being able to show recruiters the experience that
you have. In addition, LinkedIn allows you to join groups of other like-minded
individuals. By connecting with others, you may find people in your desired
field and they can even help you land a job! Social Media can be a positive
influence in your career, you just have to make sure you are sharing the right
content on the right platform.
