If you want to become a lawyer, read this article detailing a certain BigLaw firm’s very strict social media policy. The entire policy is there, too, if you have time to look through the whole thing. There’s nothing so ridiculous it’s funny; it’s just very strict throughout.
Now consider this: that’s the world you’re trying to enter. Whether you like it or not, you stand a better chance of success if you’re willing to play by its rules. Social media can bite you in the you-know-what. It’s your job to make sure it doesn’t.
It’s 2014. Law schools and law firms know what the internet is, even if they may have been slow to get with the program. They know that they may be able to find embarrassing pictures of you online. It won’t reflect well on you if they do. Don’t let them.
