Date: October 18, 2010 To: Dr. McQuaid From: Subject: The use of social networking sites Social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace are great tools for communicating and keeping in touch with friends, family, and co-workers. However, more and more hiring managers and companies are using social networking sites to track down potential employees and to take a glance at their personal life. However, this can possibly either help or hurt people’s chances in landing a job. In the process of hiring, companies browse through social networking sites to take a closer look at a candidate’s personal life because ultimately, their profile reflects their persona. For example, on Facebook, there is an info tab that can lists out your interests, education and work, and relationship status. In addition, this site allows the user to even state their religious and political view. Basically, the user is broadcasting their religious and political view for everyone to see. In the article, “Facebook-Proof your Job search,” the author advises to steer clear from advertising your religious and political view because the employer may or may not agree with the candidate, which can affect their chances in getting the job.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
