Career Services Workshop Series presents:
Join us in Hollerith Hall for workshops to help you land the job you want.
Social Media is all around us. Google+ alone has approximately 360 million monthly users. You're here. Guess who else is using social media? Employers. Hiring managers. Potentially, your next boss.
It's critical that your social media presence is job-search ready.
In this workshop, we'll show you best practices and a few examples of what not to do.
Did you know...?
"According to a new study from market analyst firm On Device Research, 1 in 10 young job seekers have lost a job opportunity because of their social media profiles. In the U.S. alone, the total was 8 percent among those 16 to 24 years old and 5 percent for those 25 to 34 years old." (http://aol.it/1enLDiR
"To help job seekers better understand the role of social media in their job search, CareerBuilder.com conducted a survey last year that asked 2,303 hiring managers and human resource professionals if, how, and why they incorporate social media into their hiring process.
They found that 37% of employers use social networks to screen potential job candidates. That means about two in five companies browse your social media profiles to evaluate your character and personality–and some even base their hiring decision on what they find." (http://onforb.es/1h8BN5S
