For years, students have been encouraged to clean up, hide, or even delete their social media accounts prior to the college application process and job search. This dated advice ignores the obvious. When done right, social media can help students get into the college or land the job of their choice.
In the competitive world of college admissions and career opportunities, students need a way to stand out from the crowded pool of qualified applicants. Social media provides the perfect platform for students to tell their story, showcase their accomplishments, and convey their character.
