Social media has recently taken the world in a storm, it is just buttons and data away to tell stories, gossip and also wisdom, however what one chose to post is a reflation of one’s character.
Social media is a reflection of one’s character and a comprehensive review of one’s profile acts as a compliment to your CV, most of the employers will have a look at your CV to make a decision on whether to give you a position or not.
This seems as unprofessional but the question will always remain what exactly you have placed in your profile, is it harming people or is it something pleasing?
During your job seeking process there are things you should avoid; we made a list of things that should be put on consideration when posting on social media.
- Use of Pseudo accounts
Always avoid having pseudo account that do not represent who you are. Having pseudo accounts is a sign of cowardice, a sign that one is not brave enough to be who they are, employers may be afraid to hire such characters.
- Sharing of Private information
Sharing too much information that maybe considered unsafe for the new employment, this information may range from employment, family information this risks you to look like a person who easily leaks information without limit.
- Use of Inappropriate photos and language
This is one of the leading causes in the industry, use of images that might trigger attention, this looks like a sign of requesting validation from the members of the public. Nakedness and abuse keep off employers.
