Job Seekers: Take Note! Companies Recruiting Heavily via Social Media

See this press release from JobviteSocial Recruiting on the Rise: Jobvite Survey Reveals 89% of U.S. Companies Plan to Use Social Recruiting in 2011

The Career Center’s suggestion?  Be where the recruiters are!  Be sure that you have a professional LinkedIn profile and be careful with what you say on Facebook and tweet on Twitter.  Build a positive brand for yourself by putting material out on the web that shows you in a professional, educated, ready-to-hire light.

If you  need help developing  a professional social media presence, meet with a Career Center counselor, coach, or resume editor.  Call 972.883.2943.
