Search your Socials

The recruitment landscape is constantly changing. Employers now look seriously at applicant’s online footprint prior to making a decision. It can reveal both good and bad traits in potential candidates.

It is certainly worth taking the time to google yourself to see what is out there, or even ask a trusted colleague to review public content for you. Put yourself in the shoes of your potential employer while reviewing your content. Check your privacy settings, delete compromising content and review your connections to put the best version of yourself forward.

Depending on your line of work your online presence can potentially work in your favour. Social pages can be a great place to promote your work. Keep your pages up to date and looking professional … you don’t know who is watching. Your professional network and detailed work history can be an invaluable source of information.
