How Online Resumes Play Into Job Searching
When you first start to consider getting your first job, your first thought is to write a resume. That is all well and good, but you should also consider creating an online resume. It’s quite different from the printed resume – which you submit to possible employers – because it covers all of your skills and experiences, without having to keep it short and within two pages.

40% of US colleges now check applicants’ social media pages before making an offer

An interesting survey has just come out of the US, showing how universities are now using applicants’ social media pages as part of their decision making process when deciding whether to offer a place to an individual at the university. 

The survey of nearly 400 college admission officers across the US by Kaplan, one of the world’s leading admission test preparation companies, found that the percentage of admissions officers who visit applicants’ social media pages to learn more about them has hit a record high of 40% — quadruple the percentage who did so in 2008. 

The survey highlighted that social media can be both a strength and a weakness for prospective students. 

37% of admissions officers say that what they’ve found about an applicant positively impacted his or her application — and an equal percentage say that what they found negatively impacted an applicant’s admissions chances. 

Positive findings included discovery of undisclosed leadership roles or community service, while negative findings included criminal offences, photos of drug or alcohol use, racial prejudice or inappropriate behaviour.

With colleges and universities showing that they are increasingly looking at social media accounts to help them decide how to allocate increasingly competitive spots in key courses, there has never been a better time to run your Social Check Report if you are about to apply to university either as an undergraduate or are considering post graduate study.
