Social Presence

We hear a lot about social media and how it can help or hinder your job search efforts. 


Every business and brand that knows the power of the web are already on Facebook. Follow, like and post to a company's feed and see up-to-date and relevant company information that may help in your job search.


Make sure to follow companies on Instagram that are of related to your job search. In an interview, you may be able to bring up a topic that you saw, showing the interviewer you are interested in the company's current situation.


Join your colleagues, classmates and friends on LinkedIn, the world's largest professional network. LinkedIn connects you to your trusted contacts and helps you expand your network to exchange knowledge, ideas, and opportunities with a broader network of professionals. What is LinkedIn?


When you're seeking employment, Twitter can be an effective part of your job search strategy. Twitter can help you make connections, find job listings, and build a personal brand that will help boost your career and expedite your job search.

Be Smart (and Careful)!

Whether you use the sites listed above, or the countless other ways to connect online, remember the concept of leaving footprints on the web. What you do and what you say online is remarkably easy to track (so are the posts and pictures your friends tag you in). Too many people get overly comfortable on social platforms and end up losing jobs and opportunities.
