When you think about the phrase "social networking," chances are your mind centers on updating your Facebook status, making a wry comment on Twitter or finding a great Thanksgiving Day recipe on Instagram.
But what about your job, more specifically your career? Have you ever considered that using social media should be more than telling the world what you had for breakfast or playing armchair quarterback after Sunday's big football game loss?
Chances are, you still haven't unlocked the power of social media as it relates to your job and perhaps searching out a better one or advancing at your current position.
What you may not realize is that your current employer and any other company, hiring manager or supervisor is spying on you, particularly your social media pages to see if you're the type of person they either want to keep, promote or hire.
Your Facebook page or Twitter feed, for example, is going to give them a window into your personal side, and whether they want to admit it or not, your company or would be employer cares about your character.
