Social Media and Your Career Development

Utilizing social media in your internship/job search, as well as to network and establish yourself as a brand, can be very effective if done properly.  Anything that you post online, whether on social media sites or a personal blog, becomes a permanent part of your digital footprint.  Be proactive about your digital footprint and make decisions about what you post online, or what your friends post about you online, that won't impact you in a negative way.
