1-10 People Lose Job Opportunities
Because of Things They Post
The fact is, employers are searching the internet more now than ever before. In a recent study, 90% of employers revealed they use social networking sites to research job candidates. They are looking for anything that would cast a shadow on an applicant. A mindless post, an insensitive tweet or an unflattering picture can ruin any job opportunity. Conversely, a positive post or anything that enhances a personal profile will magnify the opportunities. We may not be movie starts or famous people but the sooner we start managing our public images, the better off we’ll be.
“Social Media IQ has taught me to think before I post. It’s helped me avoid embarrassing moments and provided a way for me to build a more positive personal brand that will ultimately help me as I build my career.”
