According to a Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) survey, more companies are recruiting on social networking websites than ever before. LinkedIn is the top site employers are using for recruiting (95%) but more than half of companies (58%) are using Facebook. 42% of companies are using Twitter.
This means that even if you're not actively using social networking sites for job seeking, and even if you're trying to keep it personal, there's a good chance that employers will find your profiles. That's why it's important to be aware that your social media presence can impact your job search - in a good way or in a bad way.
Here are social networking tips for grads, including how to use your social media presence as aid in getting a post-college job, as well as how to be sure you're online presence doesn't cost you a shot at employment.
