Social Media Tips

A quick tip for this week:

Employers DO look at social media when hiring employees!
Watch what you are posting!
Be appropriate!


Make sure to clean up your social media profiles on Facebook and other web sites. Watch what your friends are posting about you. Check your privacy settings.

If you are on Twitter, don't tweet inappropriately or without thinking. As you can see from numerous celebrity mishaps, it can be almost impossible to "take back" or explain your less-than-thoughtful or unintended tweets.

How can you enhance your on-line image? Set up a professional profile account on LinkedIn.com, where you can search for jobs, follow companies and join groups appropriate to your job or intern search.  The Penn State Career Connection is one such group.

For assistance with LinkedIn or other career questions, come see us in the Career Services Office!
