How students are using social media to gain access to careers


Social media can play a role in career education by providing students with access to information about different industries, job roles, and career paths.


Students are using social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram to network with professionals, research companies, and showcase their skills and accomplishments to potential employers.


Additionally, students can use social media to search for job opportunities, learn about company culture, and follow industry news and trends to stay informed and up-to-date. Some students also participate in online discussions and join professional groups to build their personal brand and increase their visibility to potential employers.


Students also use social media to research universities and make informed decisions about where they want to attend.


This can include using platforms such as Instagram and Twitter to follow the official accounts of universities and get a sense of campus life and culture. They can also use social media to connect with current students and alumni, and get first-hand perspectives on what it’s like to attend a particular university. 

Students can use platforms such as Facebook to join groups dedicated to specific universities or majors, allowing them to ask questions and connect with others who are in the same position. This can help them make informed decisions about which universities might be the best fit for them based on factors such as location, campus culture, and academic offerings.


By expanding career advice to social media channels, schools can connect with students where they are and create an immersive career education experience.

We’re in the business of guiding students towards rewarding futures together with schools. We invite anyone interested in understanding more about My Careers to connect with us in this discussion.
