Myth: Social networks are not important.
Reality: Social networks are part of our lives now. If not used properly, they can be dangerous. Social and professional networks are more connected than ever and will continue to grow in size and importance. If used correctly social networks can give you control over your message, your interests and activities. If you do not control what is out there about you, it could send the wrong message. Employers check Facebook. Most employers will do background checks on candidates they are interested in, just to see what they find. If they find something that puts doubt in their minds… you lose. Google yourself…what do you see? …that is what a future employer will see too.
