On June 14, Career Services offered a presentation called “Social Media – You Are What You Share” to students during the College Hour. Attendees received tips on how to best use the networking site LinkedIn.

  • Post a picture showcasing your most professional self

The second part of the presentation contained important advice on keeping your social media presence professional.

  • Keep ALL of your profile pictures and names on social media clean and professional
  • Set social media accounts unrelated to job searching on private
  • Stay off your personal social media accounts on your externship/job
