MBA News: B-Schools Check Your Online Presence

We are sure you already know that prospective employer may examine your social networking profiles, but did you know that MBA admissions committees just might be checking Twitter or Googling your name when considering you for admission? According to an article on Bloomberg Businessweek and a survey conducted by our friends at Kaplan Test Prep, 27% of business school admissions officers say they have checked Google to learn about applicants, and 22% have visited Facebook or other social networking sites. As we mentioned in a recent blog post, you must take extreme care to control your online presence by making your social networking pages private or by completely removing any negative or inappropriate content. But admissions officers are not just looking for negatives—having a positive and robust professional online presence just might boost your chances of admission, showing that you are Internet savvy and can add something unique or interesting to the incoming class.
