Margaret discussed how to maintain balance between your personal and professional social accounts, and identified what legal recruiters look for when examining a graduate’s online footprint.
Following Margaret’s talk, Dr Burdon demonstrated how recruiters use big data to make hiring decisions. He highlighted unexpected details that may affect your job search – such as the web browser you use to upload your job application, and how to market yourself when you’re increasingly unaware of what drives hiring decisions.
