Ayo Onajide introduces himself to Nan and welcomes her to our class.

Nan began today’s class with information and suggestions for getting the job a person wants.  “First of all, more and more

companies are using the business media site, LinkedIn, to find and check on applicants

to work in their companies.  LinkedIn also helps people build and position their brands for job opportunities.  Secondly,

companies closely monitor the Facebook and Instagram postings of each job applicant. 

People may have outstanding skills and work experience but, if the images they post on Facebook and Instagram have negative brand perceptions, they will not be hired.  I know there are people who have been offered jobs and college scholarships and the jobs and scholarships have been rescinded, taken away, because of new, NEGATIVE information found either on Facebook or Instagram.  Be careful.  Finally,

do your research on the company you are applying to get a job with.  Google their name.  Make sure you know what services or products they sell.
