Week 1 Post

Wow! My first blog post how interesting and fun this is going to be! So let’s go ahead and dive right in to this weeks’ topic. As we all know, the world of social media has become the most popular way for people to communicate and find out more about each other. I have recently learned, which I did not know before, that up to 59% of employers are influenced by the social media accounts of their candidates according to this blog that I found. Everything that I post online is a reflection of the kind of person I am and I want that to be a bright,adventurous and positive one. Now from what I see on social media it makes me second guess the thought process of a lot of people. Now I’m not going to play dumb, I too have mistakenly uploaded material that at the time I thought would be cool and funny. It wasn’t until later that I learned, from a professor, that when you go to apply for jobs the first thing employers do is check every single one of your social media accounts to see what you are like outside of the professional world. And this is where opportunities are ruined for tons of people because they don’t realize what they put on the internet is for the whole world to see. It is crucial and I repeat CRUCIAL that my social media accounts remain appropriate and acceptable while at the same time staying intriguing and interesting to view. I plan on hopefully entering the world of hollywood one day and when I do my online presence and social media accounts are going to be my main way of keeping my fan base up to date with my daily life. I want television and radio companies to be proud to have me represent them and having a bad rep online will not do that. I have a lot of dreams and goals and I don’t want those to be limited due to what I post online so trust me when I say that when future employers go to look me up they will not be disappointed I promise.
