We know you’ve heard this time and time again, but be careful of the content and images you post on social media! Regardless of whether you are actively searching for a job or currently have one, it’s important to still tread carefully. Even if you have a uber-professional LinkedIn profile but your non-private Twitter account is filled with postings of your weekend debauchery…it’s very likely companies will view both when considering you for a position.
This infographic created by Staff.com shows the revealing numbers on how many companies are judging you before they even meet you based on how you use social media. One out of three employers rejected candidates based on something they found in social profiles. Make your social media profiles private if your postings can sometimes be on the verge of questionable. Better safe than sorry!
