How Social Media Can Harm You In Your Job Hunt | Now Hiring Delray Beach

Everyone these days belongs to some form of social media site, be it Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. We know that what we post online is a direct reflection of ourselves to our followers, but have you ever thought about how those posts appear to your potential new boss, or even new team members? In addition to your resume, and phone/in-person interviews, your online presence completely represents you. And you better believe that jobs now hiring in Delray Beach will be searching for you on the Internet to insure that you are a good potential cultural fit. You don’t want a company that’s JUST about to extend an offer to you, Google you and find out what you are doing on the weekends with your friends. Not a good look! Unfortunately, social media can be great at un-doing all of your hard work with your job search. If a potential hiring manager sees something about you online that he/she does not like, it could cost you the next perfect opportunity. Remove any offensive content you may have on your sites. Keep the photos of yourself to a limited amount. You wouldn’t want to end up in an interview with your potential new boss asking you about certain posts you made online. It is also important to keep your LinkedIn account updated and that it actually matches what’s on your resume. You don’t want to be caught having to explain why your experience is all over the place. Trust us when we say that companies now hiring in Delray Beach will be trying to find anything they can about you online. Social media can be fun, but if you are not careful, it can also be detrimental in your job search.
