Get Connected: Social Media for Your Career Path

Facebook      LinkedIn    Twitter

Today, NIU students can use social media tools to help you network with NIU alumni and future employers.

As you use social media sites, like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, you should keep these tips for success in mind:

  1. Keep it professional (Think before you post)
    Ask yourself, “Would I be proud to have this represent me if seen by potential employers, and supervisors?”  This includes your profile and cover photos.
  2. Know who you “like” and “friend
    Know who’s “liking” and “friending” you too.
  3. Understand and set your privacy settings appropriately.
