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)

I won't ever post that stuff on facebook. I only use fb to keep in touch with family thats it. Facebook is pleasure. Work is business. I don't mix the 2..

As a good rule of thumb, it’s best not to be a miserable cow.

By being honest I don't worry what people may read on any accounts I may have. Don't do social media but have one where people reply to posts I may have in newspapers, etc. Not perfect but have done fairly well but now retired.

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.
