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.
