According to Forbes Magazine, “more than a third of employers use social media sites in their hiring process” (Smith). I find this to be fascinating, especially in the society we live in today. Students my age, across the world are using social media to connect with friends, family, and employers. But do they realize that employers are doing the exact same thing? This is something worth paying attention to. This blog will take you through the importance of social media, social privacy and the consequences of subjecting yourself to the World Wide Web, when in the job search process. Be prepared to be shocked, be prepared to be informed, but most importantly, be prepared to protect yourself!
