Are Social Networking Sites Hindering your Job Search? by, Anna Doctors

social network sites…Make sure they’re not! If you’re a determined, motivated and diligent worker, then shout it from the roof tops! … or at least show yourself in a positive light on your profile page.

Every job seeker on a social networking site is extremely vulnerable to potential negative impressions. Now we’re not trying to tell you to immediately deactivate your accounts and hide in your home until the right job comes along… but be mindful of the fact that with all these technological advances comes very little privacy, unless you’re careful.

On the up side, these sites can be used to your benefit! All you have to do is use the “networking” aspect to its full potential. A job seeker can find all sorts of goodies on these sites, such as current job openings or important contact information!

The overall message: Have a clean and positive social presence on the internet.
