If you have NEVER been to Africa, when someone mentions "Africa" or you hear "Africa", what is the FIRST thing that comes into your mind?
As a college student major in construction translation, I may go to Aferica to work as a translator for SOEs in China. I personlly think that to work in Aferica is really a challenge. My father is ok with my decision, but my mother showed strong disagreement concerning this issue... I'm in a dilemma . The first thing that come into my mind when hearing the word 'Aferica' is exploring and trying to be safe... The movie 'Beasts Of Southern Wild' presented an 'Aferican fairy tale' in front of the world. Also I believe China always have sound and healthy relationships with Aferican countries. South Afeirca may be much safer and welthier than North Aferica. My foreign teacher once got shot while visiting North Aferica.

Can social profiles get you hired or fired?
I can't believe it! Wow, world is small, isn't it? We must meet and have some private comversations after we've been to Wuhan! The good news is that I have finished the preparation for the speech yesterday. Now I'm still working on it... How long do you plan to stay in Wuhan? I plan to go back to Nanchang next Fri. I believe you can join me to explore more parts of Wuhan. Can I have your QQ number?

Can social profiles get you hired or fired?
Thank you for your generous help, my understandings of this particular issue have become more and more profound and unique. You hit the point Robert, a person's overall social profiles can't reflect his/her working abilities, such as efficiency and accuracy, meanwhile, it is an important criterion concerning the person's morals and maybe loyalty to his/her company. Anyway, this kind of issue varies from company to company.

Thank you for you information. Now I understand that a person's social profiles can really have huge impacts on his/her career. Also, would it be convenient for you to share some of the experiences you or your friends have been through concerning this particular issue? For example, some companies that actually adopt a person's social profiles as one of the recruitment criteria. Maybe you can list the names of these companies.

Thanks for your thorough perspective. Preparing for a speech contest can be really exhausting... I got the definition of the phrase ' Social Profiles' from gartner.com, and yes, you interpreted the phrase right! To my surprise, a lot of SOEs are now using this 'technique' as a way of recruitment. Also, you've mentioned that you've never fired someone for a social media sit posting. And I guess you may work for a SOE or a multinational company. So, in your point of view, is it appropriate for companies to judge a person's overall abilities by their tweets, or simply by their bad pictures from Facebook. Frankly speaking, I seldom update my social profiles, It never occurred to me that these days, I'm forced to show some of my abilities on the internet, does this mean I'm kind of conservative?
