Using Social Media for College Admissions

Just who is using social media for college admissions? Looks like it’s not just HR managers who are perusing social media profiles. Admissions directors check candidates out on Facebook, too. But not to worry. According to Kaplan, 62% of admissions officers reported that social media profiles helped applicants get accepted, instead of hurt their chances.

Filling out grad school applications? Go ahead and send the admissions director a friend request on Linkedin. But before you do, just make sure your profile puts your very best foot forward and is completely up to date.
