While surfing various Tweets today (it's my job, I promise), I came across this video which makes use of Harris data from a study we conducted for CareerBuilder back in June 2009. The study sought to answer a couple of different employment-related questions:
- Do employers look up potential job candidates using social networking sites? (The answer is a resounding YES, YES, YES ... and the percentage is only growing.)
- How can a potential employee's social profile make or break them in terms of scoring a job?
Check out this video and find out if you are committing any of the cardinal sins of social networking -- chances are, your profile isn't as squeaky clean as employers would like!
(As an aside -- the video also includes soothing music along with photos of cute animals and babies, so if you aren't into learning how to give your Facebook a facelift, you'll still really enjoy this afternoon treat.)
In the meantime, I'm off to delete a few pictures.
P.S. Many thanks to YouTube user, edtechsteve, for posting this video.
