    Finding a dream job: Dating for the perfect match
    By Linchi Kwok
    May is the month of graduations. Many new graduates are excited about their future, but at the same time somewhat nervous about new jobs and a new life. Occasionally, I will meet with some graduating seniors who need career advice. My suggestion is: Forget about the stereotypes others put on you and trust your gut. You know what you are good at and what you like. Find an employer that is the best match — if not the perfect match — for yourself. Act as if the employer is the perfect match for you in your personal life.

And when you apply to a job, most hiring managers will first turn to Google to vet your background and qualifications. Whichever way you swing it, you can't avoid social media anymore, and how you manage — or don't manage — your social presence can make or break your job hunt. It's time to take control of your image and start thinking of social media as personal branding.
