Q. can you help me find what search engine and database I need to use to find the need to use social media in a job search?



Thanks for contacting the Online Library!

The Internet browser you use should not make a difference in your search, however, I personally prefer Google Chrome. 

To find information on your topic, I recommend the following: 

  • From the Online Library home page, click Find Articles and more
  • Then from the list of resources provided I recommend:
    • ProQest Central 
    • All EBSCO databases
  • For your search criteria, I suggest: 
    • "social media" AND "job search" 
    • "social media" AND career
    • "social media" AND "employment opportunities" 
  • You will also want to be sure to limit your search by checking the Full text check box.  
  • You may also want to check the Scholarly (peer reviewed) check box for studies and research on the topic.

See below for examples of the search criteria.
