One more example of how Facebook is no longer just a social media site but is taking over the world (like that is a revelation): it has turned into a requirement during the job search.
Cisco conducted a study of 2,800 college students and young professionals found that an overwhelming amount believe that being able to use Facebook at work and use their choice of device was more important to them than their salary. In fact, 40% of them would take less money as long as they were able to use social media while at work.
The study also found:
- Over half of college students globally (56%) said that if they were offered a job at a company that banned access to social media, they would either turn it down, or ignore it.
- Two-thirds said they will ask about social media usage policies during job interviews.
I guess all that mumble jumble that’s been going around about it being a tough time to find a job was completely false. And really, who needs a corner office or a holiday bonus as long as I can post about what I had for lunch today.
