More and More Students Finding Jobs through Social Media
One third of students apply for jobs through social media, according to the article that I read on Techzine.nl. The research also mentions that 20 percent of Facebook users have attached their professional information (such as work experience and education info) to their Facebook profiles. Is it true that social media could help people find a job?
It is not a secret anymore that employers screen social media profiles of new applicants before they set up for an interview. And it is true, social media has become one of the effective recruitment tools. The statistics say:
So job-seekers, make sure you have a “clean profile”! Maybe some suggestions for students who are looking for jobs:
In an other article, I found out that 40 percent of the college students and 45 percent of the young employees said they would accept a lower-paying job that had more flexibility with regards to device choice, social media access and mobility, rather than take a higher-paying job with less flexibility. Wait, WHAT? Has social media become that important that students and young employees prefer to take a lower salary, so that they are able to chat on Facebook during work hours? I find the result a bit crazy. What do you think?
