Young Academic can bring you some great advice this afternoon on how you can leverage social media to improve your job search. Take a good look below and be sure to leave some comments if you have some experience on social media and employment.

A lot of people are currently looking for work. Unemployment has been at a steady high recently and people are starting to get desperate. With loads of people looking for work, the jobs get snapped up quickly and there’s a lot of competition for the majority of jobs which means finding work is harder than ever.

You need to make yourself stand out from the crowd and a part of this is not making stupid mistakes like leaving up those alcohol infested photos from you last birthday on Facebook for all to see, as it seems that employers will be checking. See the below infographic if you don’t believe me. Don’t make stupid mistakes, you owe yourself that much. Give yourself the best possible chance.

The infographic is not just about presenting yourself in the best light, it also lays out some ideas on how to really improve your search by using the various social medias. Take a look; it might make all the difference.
