your Facebook account

Don’t let your Facebook profile stop you from getting a job! Employers are checking you out EVERYWHERE, social media included, so make sure to put your best Facebook forward.

Do a check in and make sure your account is #jobready by answering these questions!

1- Do you possess and/or showcase the qualifications you claim in your resume on your Facebook account? Start by filling out your “About” section! This is the chance to fill out the skills you possess in a summary much like the one in your resume.

2- Have you updated your work history and education? Keep things fresh and active!

3- Are you a good fit with the company’s corporate culture (you can find this info on the company’s page under their mission statement)? Your likes, shares, and posts all tell a story about your beliefs and values so think carefully before clicking away.

4- Do you have anything incriminating that would give them a reason not to hire you? Do you speak negatively about your boss and colleagues or make fun of past clients on your profile?

Looking for more tips? Check out the things to avoid on your social media accounts [here] (https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/4769ae73-8418-5d22-a281-69b328c174a6)

WTF business is it of employers to be on my FB page? Supreme Court has ruled employees can't be fired for anything they post, why should we be judged for hiring by that standard. Too many employers these days are corrupt.

Good Question! First, they will check if you have a social media or digital presence to confirm that you are someone who's contemporary and unafraid of engaging on common technical platforms the companies services or customer also use to do business.

Next, they will check what you have to say. How do you engage, positive, negative, neutral, or other. Employers want to use every means and vehicles available to find out who you are when you're not under the interview or job search spotlight. Culture fit plays HUGE role in the employee selection process so your digital presence matters.

Have you tried Googling yourself lately? Give it a try and see what comes up.
