56% Of Young Professionals Won’t Work At A Company That Bans Twitter And Facebook [INFOGRAPHIC]

A decent salary is always welcome, but that alone is no longer enough of a glittering lure for young professionals looking for work.

Cisco surveyed 2,800 college students and recently employed graduates and discovered that two thirds will actively enquire about a firm’s social media policies during a job interview, with some 56% refusing to work at a company that bans social media.

When you consider that a third of the students polled “consider the Internet to be as important as air, water, food, and shelter”, this isn’t all that surprising, especially as the internet for many young people nowadays is Facebook and Twitter.

Other key takeaways:

  • A third of the students polled prioritized social media freedom over salary
  • 4/5 students want to be able to choose the devices they use in their jobs
  • 68% of the employed graduates believe that corporate devices should be used for social media and personal use
