Social media and careers

Social media is an important part of your career no matter what sector or role you’re going for. From researching organisations, finding vacancies, gaining insights to networking and even getting head hunted - how social media is used varies from organisation to organisation but you shouldn’t leave it out of your career plans.

For some roles if you aren’t engaged with social media you simply won’t get the job.
