  1. Get everything squeaky clean.
  2. Use your real name.
  3. Keep your image professional and consistent.
  4. Put them on your job search materials
  5. Don't use it for professional communications (excluding Linkedin)

Social media provides a glimpse into an applicant’s personality beyond the resume. Questionable content or behavior is the first thing most employers or recruiters look for, ensuring that the applicant wouldn’t be involved in several issues in the future that can risk the company’s branding. Social media platforms also allow hiring managers to check if the information on an applicant’s resume is consistent with the information posted online. Be aware of what you post at all times! #socialmedia #jobs #advice #jobsearch

Absolutely! Great advice! It's unfortunate to have to be so careful about everything that is related to our identities online, but regardless it is essential to maintain some privacy and professionalism on social media! Thanks for this post! 💗👏

Another option is to use your social media in private mode so nobody can see anything.

This is great advice! Employers do look at social media sites and it is good to be aware of what you are posting and how you are presenting yourself.
