Why Students Need To Rethink Social Media in 2018
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Today, both colleges and employers are actively looking at students' social media profiles.  Research from companies like Social Assurity and Social Intelligence confirms that while colleges are using sophisticated software to track student interest and interactions, many employers are using third-party background screening companies as part of their hiring process. Legally, these companies can look at up to seven years of internet and social media history, which means what students are posting today may be part of a social media audit that could affect their prospective employment opportunities.

Join us to hear Robin Clebnik, Career Exploration Expert and founder of InternBoston, explain exactly what information prospective schools and employers are looking for, as well as how students can use social media to build an authentic, discoverable and informative digital presence. There’s time for a Q + A at the end of the talk and all participants will receive a digital copy of this presentation. This is for teens and their adults.
