Are You Friends With Your Boss on Facebook?

Students are becoming increasingly attached to their social networking sites, but how many know that employers use them as well? Companies look at everything from photos to the type of language used in comments. Furthermore, the first impression an interviewer receives about a prospective employee should not be in the form of a politically incorrect “bumper sticker.” This presentation informs job-seekers about the damage that unmonitored social networking sites may do to the chances of being hired.

Presenter: Katie Kanellis (Undergraduate Student)
Topic: English
Location: 120 Hartwell
