Two weeks ago, the Herald Sun reported that the Victorian State government has developed a resource to address teenagers missing out on jobs due to inappropriate social media and digital footprints.
Youth Affairs Minister Ryan Smith is launching a fresh campaign urging young Victorians to re-address their social-media etiquette and remember that posts can last forever.
The Baillieu Government’s new push, to be launched today, has the theme, “It’s There for Life“. Students across Victoria will be warned on the dangers of sexting and social-media pitfalls in a bid to reduce the number of prospective employees hurt by their online presence.
There is also a competition for students with prizes valued at $1500. Entries for the competition close on 14 April. Enter here.
