If you're not preparing your students to use social media well, you're not doing your job

Our students are living in a world where more than 90% of employers use social media for recruiting.  If students are not savvy users of social media, they can kill their chance of getting many jobs. In fact 1 in 3 employers said candidates weren't hired because of something they said online. On the other hand, students can use social media to shine. Innovative educators are tasked with helping them do just that.

The first step in leading our students in this online journey is to ensure they understand and know the numbers.  The below infographic, with stats and sources, does a nice job of bringing this to light.
