9 Ways Students Can Use Social Media to Boost Their Careers

Whether you like it or not, Social Media is happening and it is here to stay. If you are not on broad now, you are behind your peers who are going after the same jobs as you. By not embracing Social Media you are making yourself less knowledgeable and employable, so get started now!

Kate Brodock, the executive director of digital and social media at Syracuse University, has put together a list of 9 things that students need to consider when they start to use social media professionally.

I feel that #9 on the list is one of the most important for students to understand. It is "What you do now will pay off later." If you wait to begin your online presence until after graduation YOU ARE LATE. Here is a list of the benefits of using Social Media professionally while still in school:

- You position yourself as forward-thinking
- You forge stronger industry connections
- You strengthen your on-paper credentials

With these benefits coming from something assessable to everyone, you have no excuse to not be involved with Social Media.

Check out the following link for the complete list of things to consider when starting to use Social Media professionally while in school:
