How (And Why) To Look Professional On Social Media [INFOGRAPHIC]

Social media? It’s never been more important to look good.

This is especially true if you’re a college student with an eye on securing a top job when you graduate – 37 percent of employers now use Facebook to pre-screen applicants, and 92 percent of recruiters use or plan to use social media for recruitment.

Almost nine in ten recruiters have made a hire through LinkedIn, and 73 percent have successfully hired a candidate who was introduced to them through a social media site.

So if your latest status is a typo-filled, profanity-laden (but hilarious) photo of you and friends getting wasted, you might want to, you know, reevaluate. This infographic from Bryant & Stratton College presents a wealth of tips for college graduates and students on how to look professional on social media.
