This Saturday, as part of our Careers Prep in a Day event we will be running a session on using social media to develop your career. Seriously, who could have predicted a decade ago that social media would be such an integral part of our day-to-day lives? The rise of social media is both a god send and a threat to potential job seekers. This article from the Guardian makes for excellent reading providing valuable insights on how to get social media right and what to avoid to get it completely wrong!
