Concentrate your networking and job search efforts on professional networking sites such as LinkedIn rather than social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. However, if you choose to use social networking sites in your job search, follow these tips:
- Consider anything put online as public.
- Make sure all of your social networking methods, such as Facebook and Twitter are up-to-date and consistent with each other before starting a job search or personal branding campaign using social media.
- Employers do not have the right to require access to your social media accounts.
