In the year 2022, we find ourselves more connected than ever, due to social media and the internet. My parents, some aunts and uncles and even friends have found themselves not really trusting social media because they've heard about awful experiences some have had.

But, if we spend so much of our time on the internet, talking to people, looking for jobs, doing our jobs, why not use it to our advantage?

Check out @Kai Dickerson article on How your social media activity impacts your job search.

Hello, Everyone I have over 15 years in retail and was recently terminated from my job. When I attend career workshops, I'm being told that recruiters and h.r. managers are more likely to look at your resume if you have a LinkedIn or Facebook profile. I chose to have neither. Is this hurting my chances to obtain employment??

I have a personal policy that I do not friend anyone in Facebook with whom I currently work no matter if we are on the same level or not and no matter how good "work friends" we are. For me, it's easier to keep your work and personal lives separate. I do however have a business page they can "like ".

In my current office setting, I realize that my supervisor and co-worker have been working together a long time and they probably "friended" each other long before one became supervisor but when I have to listen to things like "I could tell how drunk you were from the pictures on Facebook " I just feel like it's unprofessional on too many levels to list.

I'm curious, have any companies out there initiated any policies that address this? What are your thoughts?

Thanks

I started a new job last week that I'm still not sure if it's a good fit for me yet. I've been receiving facebook friend request from some people in the department but I'm hesitant to accept in case I decide to quit this month. I think it's too soon to buddy up with anybody and I'm feeling pressured to respond.

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?

Recently there have been several posts from Jobcasers dealing with job loss or the fear of being fired after taking a boss or co-worker into their confidence. In this era of social media it seems everyone is more and more open about their finances, relationships, political views, etc. But that is NOT wise --- and it is NOT healthy.

Guard your privacy. As you work alongside people it's natural to become friends with some. And that's great. Be cordial, be a friend, but always keep the relationship professional. Limit what you share and you'll be happier and better for it. So will your career.

Remember that -- first and foremost -- you are there to DO YOUR JOB.

I am going to update my home page and would like to include a blog where others can post. Does anyone here have information about a free blog account? Thanks
