Building Your Social Media Profile
Is your LinkedIn profile as polished and as up to date as your CV? Are you well-represented online by social media?
Social media sites such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn have increased dramatically in popularity over the past decade, becoming a daily part of many people’s lives. They’ve made our lives more public and give employers the ability to scout out potential candidates online, only to vet them based on their online activities.
It seems unfair, certainly, but then it’s easy enough to remove anything from your social media platforms which could potentially damage your chances of landing an interview. Twitter and Instagram, for example, are generally more public than Facebook and Vine. Any bad spelling, bad language, controversial statements or compromising photographs can all have a negative impact on a recruiter.
Your LinkedIn may also prove crucial. Does your profile contain up to date details of all your employment achievements? Does it convey a personality that would fit in well with the organisation whose job you’re applying for?
