What does your social media presence say about you? You might think that everything you post on social media is for your friends and can only impact upon your social life, but this is simply not true anymore. More than 70% of employers in a recent study said that they use social media to research potential candidates for job roles, and that this can have a huge impact on the decision to hire or not to hire.
Here at CareerWise, we always advise our clients to be careful about what they share about their lives online. Nothing that is posted on the internet is private, and it’s a good idea to consider, before you post each time, whether you would be happy to see this image or information re-surfacing in ten years time. If you’re not sure, don’t post it!
Read on for our guide to making your online presence work for you, and you can create a profile that is an asset to your career rather than a millstone:
