STAMFORD - Local employment experts say while a growing number of people are using social networking sites such as Facebook to look for work, job seekers should watch out for some pitfalls.

Jessica Herlihy, of Family Centers in Stamford, says one of the first things she does with a client is Google his or her name to see what comes up.

She says about 55 percent of all employers do the same thing when they get an application. That is why Herlihy urges job seekers not to post anything online that they wouldn't want employers to see.

"One picture, one tweet, one blog can really represent something that really isn't the whole you, but that's the first impression someone gets," she says.
