Many members of Gen Y seem to live their whole lives online. While social media is said to be “native” to this group however, do their skills translate to the professional world? Are there different online rules that apply in and around the workplace?
Some social media natives may reveal themselves as more “babes in the woods” if they can’t adapt their online behavior to the office environment. We, along with social recruiting and social media mentor Emilie Mecklenborg (@EmilieMeck on Twitter, a MUST follow), took on this subject during our weekly #InternPro chat, which we called “Social Media Netiquette: Do’s and Don’ts for the Young Professional”. The chat is summarized, for your convenience, below.
In our next episode… on Monday, February 4, we’ll be tellin’ no lies: “Truthiness: The Role of Honesty in the Job Search”. Join us at 9pm ET for conversation, learning and networking!
