Research title: “Facebook and the Hiring Process: What’s the Writing on Your Wall Tell Potential Employers?”

“There is something to be said about talking with employers who had turned down a candidate solely based on their social media profiles. This affected the nature of all my social media usage greatly. Students sometimes don’t understand that what they post impulsively, which is second nature to many young adults, may not be the most beneficial in the long run.”
