You may be able to find the information you desire on the site in order to make an informed decision about enrolling in an online institution.

But what can you do once you’ve earned your degree? What path can you take toward searching and applying for jobs? And what's an effective strategy for making yourself visible to corporate recruiters? Having a degree might not be enough. You may have to leverage every option at your disposal, and creating a social résumé could be a useful tactic.

Some say that the worst thing about social networking is that everyone can see who you are and what you are doing.

Well, one of the best things about social networking is that everyone can see who you are and what you are doing.

Being connected with the whole world can have consequences, but they don’t have to be negative. In fact, social connectivity can be a wondrous boon for someone looking for employment. Independent bloggers can supply links to their works. Visual artists can build a website and point potential employers there.

LinkedIn is another place where people build social profiles in order to search for work. Employers can use LinkedIn to find qualified individuals and post job openings. Facebook has also launched its own job board to help those seeking careers.

Leaving digital breadcrumbs that lead to your work can help provide employers with a vision of what you could bring to their company. This infographic can show you more about how to build a social résumé, and if you’re still wondering which career best suits you, take our free career test.
