Did you know LinkedIn is available to 14-year-olds? Yes, and it has been so for two years.
Duringher presentation entitled “Getting the social edge” at Fusion Academy Greenwich last week, Linda Orton, a marketing and recruitment expert who runs TheUnicornContinuum.com, said surprisingly few teens have jumped at the opportunity. And, yes, it is an opportunity.
In fact, she said teens may not yet be aware that a clean, carefully cultivated online presence may offer an edge in college admissions.
Orton said that during the admissions process, borderline students may find themselves rejected if admissions officers discover something negative in their social media.
