Managing Your Social Media:
Recruiters and employers are using social networks to screen job candidates. Companies DO judge applicants based on their social media profiles!
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
“As the world becomes increasingly connected through social media, employees are interacting more with co-workers, supervisors, and other professional contacts on online social networks. Some of these online networks, such as Facebook or Twitter, are social spaces where interactions can be personal as well as professional. This results in a potential collision of worlds that can open up opportunities as well as create challenges for employees”

The Social Media Dos and Don'ts for Students
Researchers identified four approaches that social media participants can take:
. Keeping professional and personal networks separate. For example, using Facebook for personal contacts and LinkedIn for professional contacts
. Having both professional and personal contacts on one platform, but managing the content you post to improve your image in the eyes of both personal and professional contacts. Controlling who can tag you in photos and monitoring the comments other make on your profile on Facebook is very important. On Twitter it means
paying attention to what you tweet!
. Doing both audience and content by separating professional and personal audiences (by using
on Facebook), and managing the content to try and look good in the eyes of colleagues and personal friends. You could try to do this with
on Twitter. The best choice is to have two separate accounts on Twitter – one personal, one professional.
Airing your views and feelings, whether they are positive or negative, and letting everyone comment on your posts. No filtering of content, and no boundary management. This is probably what most people do and it’s the most dangerous.

approaches are the most likely to increase respectability and likeability in the workplace. This requires constant monitoring.
Best Practices:
1. Investigate Yourself
Take inventory of what can be found online about you. Google yourself and see what comes back.
Peruse your Facebook profile and mark items as private, or untag yourself in pictures you don't want to be seen in.
Remove others' ability to tag you in photos.
Sign up for Google Alerts so you know when something new has been posted about you online.

2. Create Positive Profiles
Allow “everyone” to view your Work and Education, About You, and your contact info. This makes it easier for people to find you if they are looking on Facebook.
Find, visit, and “like” Facebook fan pages for any company that interests you.
Use Facebook updates to show what you know. You likely don’t have a whole lot of work experience, but research your field online and share links to articles in your status updates. Start sharing ideas. Your contacts will begin to think of you as a go-to resource on that topic, and will think of you if they learn about jobs.

Being negative will not impress anyone. For example, be mindful of your tweets. “History test=total fail. I hate Mr. Smith!” That tweet will not win you points with Mr. Smith, or other readers.
Don’t wear your heart on your sleeve. Facebook status update: “My biggest dream is to attend (insert specific college here), but I won’t be able to unless I get a FULL scholarship. I totally deserve this and I will just die if this doesn’t happen!” You probably wouldn’t run up and down the halls of your high school broadcasting this, so don’t do it online.
“So happy the blood drive was a huge success. What a great feeling to give blood!”
It is perfectly acceptable to post photos of yourself online, just make sure that they are showing
your best possible self
that should reflect your personality and how you want to be perceived.
