In this new day and age, technology is the focal point of many things we do. Computers are consulted daily in a number of ways: email, checking or comparing product reviews, and of course, social media. So with all of the ways technology and the Internet affect our lives, why not expand it to the areas you’re not using it for: searching for your new job. That’s right, the social media accounts you already have and use daily can help get you a job.
