Graduating Seniors - Is Facebook Hurting Your Job Search

There is a very interesting HLN Special Report found here which will make you think twice before posting on Facebook or Twitter about Friday night's wild party and how many beers you downed or how much in love you are with what's his name. According to the report 69% of all employers in the US admit that they have not chosen job candidates because of Facebook posts. Employers routinely look up prospective employees Facebook and tweeter accounts prior to an interview to get a feel for what type of person you are. Inappropriate postings by you OR your friends (you are the company you keep) can hurt you in the job market. Watch the video report and take their suggestions on how to maintain your online reputation!
