If not… do it now!
What did you find?
Your digital footprint can impact your future career… both negatively and positively!
The number of employers who are using social media to get background information on job candidates is increasing and there are numerous stories in the media about candidates being rejected due to their social media presence.
You need to manage this by ensuring appropriate privacy settings are in place, but you can also use social media to your advantage, by building a professional profile on LinkedIn and other social media platforms such as Twitter. These can help you to extend your network beyond your immediate circle, thus increasing potential career opportunities. You should also be aware that many companies are now utilising social media platforms to advertise vacancies and seek out candidates, so if you are not using these platforms you may miss out on the job of your dreams!
