Indeed, that was the question I did to myself with four other classmates for this post. For the past weeks, my classmates Yairimar, Solimar, Natalia, Paola and I have been investigating about how can your social media reputation affect or have an impact on your professional career. Since this is a controversial topic and we wanted to have some fact-ful answers and opinions, we interviewed students and professionals.
For this second assignment for my New Digital Media and Socia Media class, my classmates and I created a podcast where we ended up with surprising answers and interesting reflexions.
For my fourth assignment, I wrote this summary and conclusion of the podcast.
We asked the students if they take precautions when posting content on their social medias. We also asked them if they believed that their social media reputation could affect their professional careers. On the other hand, we asked professionals, mostly recruiters, if they look at the social media profiles of the people that apply for a job in their workplace. We interviewed an approximate of 20 persons.
What most shocked me about the interviews was some personal anecdotes people told us about why do they believe people should be careful with what they post on social media (listen to the podcast to find out!). On the other hand, the majority responded similar answers however there were people who disagreed.
My classmates and I believe that we should be careful on social media and we should think before we post regardless of knowing if recruiters check out or not our social profiles. We should always be aware and conscious that there is no privacy on the web today.
Solimar, Natalia, Yairimar, Paola and I interviewed college students. Similarly, Natalia, Solimar and Yairimar interviewed college professionals and recruiters. The students and professionals gave us their consent to record the interviews.
On the other hand, each person wrote what they said in this audio and this podcast was edited by me.
