Google+ For Employment

Google+ is the second most popular social network behind Facebook in terms of interaction. Use the fact that not everyone is using it to your advantage, as you are more likely to be noticed. Employers are more likely to have people engaging with them on other social networks but not Google+, so it’s easier to draw their attention to you.

Have a professional profile photo as employers will want to know who you are for engagements. Your profile photo should reflect how you will look in a professional environment.
