How to find a graduate job using social media

Using social media wisely at university can help land the perfect graduate job. young person using tablet

For most students, using social media and applying for graduate jobs are entirely separate activities. After all, status updates about your “excellent communication skills” and A* in English Literature are as likely to interest your friends as embarrassing drunken photos are likely to impress prospective employers.

But get it right and social media can play a key role in landing the perfect graduate job once you leave university.

Over 90 per cent of employers will use social recruiting, and among the many tools available to students you would do well consider your professional online brand using LinkedIn. From a professional-looking photo, keyword-aware headline statement and summary section, to identifying your top skills and achieving an ‘all-star’ profile, there are many aspects to building an online presence that reflects your career ambitions.
