As a final year student, battling the job frontier along with coursework is frustrating at the best of times. It can be a real confidence shaker and not all of us have the time to be regulars at the career guidance office.
Along with the nightmares about missing your deadlines, you might find yourself having nightmares about employers entering your name into Google and opening a Facebook page brimming with pictures of last night’s antics, and that tattoo you got on your…forearm.
We all want our employers to see us as professionals who also have a social life, so why not show them this dynamic online as well as in real life? We owe social networking sites praise for making communication so much easier between friends and family but is this profile what you want a potential employer scanning through?
Of course we’ve all been to college parties and most employers won’t be completely shocked by a beer in-hand photo, but why not offer your employer more and add an asset to your search results?
Most of us have mastered social networking (sometimes I can feel my phone vibrate with a notification before it does), but now is the time to master your professional networking. I know this all must seem new and scary but trust me, when your “likes” start becoming job offers you’ll be glad of the Cork man, Cathal Doorley who created this outlet for us graduates and students.
