Social Network Sites: A Starting Point for Career Development Practitioners
Strehlke, Christina
Journal of Employment Counseling, v47 n1 p38-48 Mar 2010
This action research study explores the career influence of social network sites (SNSs) by examining 14 web-based articles that consider the risks and opportunities of SNSs from a job search perspective. Three themes are discussed: user visibility, self-presentation, and network connections. Practical strategies are identified to help career development professionals update their counseling approaches and engage clients in conversations concerning privacy issues, negotiating public and private boundaries on the web, self-presentation, and applying networking best practices to SNSs.
