So how does Social Media participation effect career growth? Can this participation help you move up in your current job or help you find a new one?
In a Blog post by Matt Petronzio on Mashable he writes about a web site called Jackalope that uses your social media connections to help you find a job. What if you don't have any connections?
Is this a first step toward social media being part of your professional vita? I can see that day when social media participation is considered a positive aspect of your professional profile - just like the school you went to or the extracurricular activities you participate in. This information gives the recruiter or hiring manager a better feel for who you are. Why not your social media footprint as well? Participation in social media shows you as an active, connected and (hopefully) thoughtful person. Can considering this information as part of the hiring decision not be too far away?
