Over the years social media has become an essential part of are lives. Whether it pertains to our professional or personal lives. There are many ways social media platforms can be used to advance your career. Creating a efficient profile can be very useful on the path of advancing your career while utilizing social media. A efficient profile will give you the opportunity to display all of your experience and school information. Social media will also allow you to connect with like minded people and share ideas about new ways to connect to recruiters and hiring managers.

Social media can definitely work favorable in the pursuit of obtaining a career. Social media can also be your worst nightmare if used inappropriately. One of the ways that social media can hurt your chances for advancement in the workplace would be from negative posts on different websites such as Facebook, Twitter etc. Social media is one of the tools used by employers to conduct background checks and find other interesting information about a prospective candidate. Before posting any information or photos you must think about the consequences of the remarks you post.

Social media is the best way to advance your career because everyone is using it. Everything in the world seems to revolve around social media now days. You can “go live” and gather an audience that way as well as starting up a separate business page. You can make your business page like your portfolio or make a separate page for that as well. Along with helping your career, social media can also ruin your career just as fast. If you don’t watch what you post and then your boss or potential boss goes onto your page and sees the content you posted, it could destroy your chances of ever getting that job. The same goes for situations that you are trying to gather up a clientele. If they see bad content, they are not going to want to come to you for business. I look at social media as a double edged sword. It can really help you, but at the same time it can really hurt you. What baffles me is that kids know how to do everything on social media and even more, before they can even drive.
