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?
