LinkedIn is typically the go-to social network for finding a job and networking. But the (still) hot Pinterest is quickly becoming something you can’t ignore. Pinterest can act as a showcase and portfolio for graphic design students and artists of course … but it’s useful for nearly all other students as well.
From creating a virtual resume to networking and even finding a job, it’s surprising how some students (and others of course) are leveraging Pinterest. But the key thing to remember for all students young and old is to treat your digital presence as something sacred that you need to monitor, maintain, and update. After all, any employer or teacher or administrator can see exactly what you’re pinning or doing online anytime.
