W5: Job Search
This week we are focusing on building a resume. When you are in search of a job, a resume is just one part of the process. Employers today have access to far more information than what is included on your resume. Many of us use Facebook and Twitter from a social perspective and make the incorrect assumption that this is completely private. I would like everyone to review your online presence (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.). If your potential employer were to see your posts, what impression would they get? Perform an internet search of yourself…did anything interesting come up?
Respond here with your thoughts. Are there things that you need to clean up in the digital world? Will this review change your posts going forward? How?
Instructions: The goal of the discussions is to have a robust, informative, and reflective interaction about course topics. Learning is directly related to effort put forth toward discussion engagement and participation. In order to encourage active and quality participation that adds value and increases learning, the grade you earn will be higher as your participation and quality of content increases. Please post at least two substantive replies to classmates or your instructor for full credit consideration.
You are expected to participate during the current week’s discussion. Contact your instructor in cases of emergency or uncontrollable circumstances.
