Social Networking Sites And Your Job Search

  1. 1. Social Networking Sites and Your Job Search Oakland University Career Services
  2. 2. “Digital Dirt” • Recruiters read much of what’s posted about job hunters on the Web • Monitor your web presence – Google yourself, find out what’s out there – Pubsub.com alerts you when your name is mentioned in newsgroups, blogs… (Flesher, 2006)
  3. 3. Clean Up or Bury Your Digital Dirt • Clean up your Facebook – Recruiters have alumni .edu email addresses, student employees with .edu email addresses… • Bury your dirt – Crowd it out with positive online presence • Search engines rank results based on the number of sites that link to those pages • Consider starting a professional web page or blog (Flesher, 2006; ISU, 2006)
