A local business owner says that it is important for people searching for jobs to have clean social media profiles. As recent college graduates from the area are searching for full-time employment, it is important for them to do some summer cleaning of their social media. Nathan Drager, owner of Quantum PC, says that social media can be both effective and dangerous when on the hunt for a job. He says that as a small business owner social media if used properly, can help potential job candidates appear more qualified than others.
Drager goes on to say that social media can hurt a reputation as much as it can help. He says that it is important to go through the different accounts when looking at jobs and clean them of posts that could be damaging. It was also mentioned that if a candidate has not used social media in awhile it is important to check their accounts periodically to make sure no other posts have been posted without their permission.
