slides: 10 Things College Students Should Know About Social Media
Thursday, October 03, 2013
Use your name (or something equally important) for your username. Professionally, your @BabyGirlXo won’t cut it. Now’s the time to start branding yourself. Use this username for every platform- Facebook, Twitter, email address, etc. It’s also good for your SEO and Google results to have the same username. If your username is taken, try a middle initial or favorite number.
Use Facebook’s Job History to make an online resume. Add jobs, internships and volunteer experience to your Facebook job history. Also add in “Milestone” on your Timeline for your Study Abroad, an award you won or other accomplishments. Posts about your hobbies or interests; just make sure they’re appropriate (sorry, beer pong is not an interest).
Make a website
Invest in an online portfolio or website. Not a developer? No problem. Sites like Carbon Made or Vizify offer free online portfolios that are easy to create and manage. Update your online portfolio with class projects, volunteer experience and internships as you add them to your resume.
