Jed Mettee is the Vice President of Marketing and Communications for the San Jose Earthquakes, a major league soccer team. In this video, he talks about the importance of using social media carefully and positively. Young people must remember that social media accounts are public, and everything posted can affect future opportunities. It’s crucial to be careful about what you post and put out there. It’s okay to show your personality, but always be careful because you don’t want anything that might be seen as negative to an athletic recruiter or future employer.
