PediaStaff Job Search Tip of the Week: Is Your Best Face Forward on Facebook?
Would you want a potential employer to see your Facebook page as it stands today?
A recent study commissioned by Career Builder, has found that 37 percent of hiring managers use social networking sites to research job applicants, with over 65 percent of that group using Facebook as their primary resource. 34 percent of hiring managers said they had come across something that caused them not to hire a candidate. In nearly half of these cases, the person posted a provocative photo or had made reference to drinking or drug use.
How do YOUR Facebook (Twitter and Instagram) accounts reflect you? Chances are, if there is something on your page that you wouldn’t want your grandmother to see, you should delete it. Also, double check your privacy settings to make sure that nothing compromising or embarrassing is visible to the public.
