In present day society, social media has become an important part of our daily interactions, more so than anything in our history. Never before have we been able, with such clarity and impact, to look back and see our thoughts and feelings, statements and involvement than with todays online presence. In the 30+ years I have been involved with retail, restaurant, business, and local and state government positions, I have often been involved in pre-screening applicants and resumes for employers. It genuinely surprises me to see poorly worded and mis-spelled words included in applications and resume statements in our atmosphere of automatic spell check. Not to mention the comments and statements that people post on various job search sites, such as this. Granted, yes, facebook and such are geared towards personal connections with family and friends, and employers will take that into account; but when you post a statement or comment on a job search site, it should be properly worded, properly spelled, and punctuated. If you can not read a statement in full without pausing, then it should be punctuated or broken down to more than one sentence. Please believe me when I say that employers do look to see if you have an online presence, how you conduct yourself, and how well you express yourself. They see multiple resumes and cover letters, and can easily tell if you have used a 'stock' letter, or have taken the time and effort to use that cover letter as an opportunity to present something of yourself they won't find in your resume. Are you involved with your church, Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions or Veterans groups? This shows networking and cooperative skills. Do you volunteer at a local school, daycare, or retirement home? This shows an awareness of the world and community outside of yourself. Do you quilt, garden, paint, do wood working or other crafts? This shows creative intellect and a desire to constantly improve on what has been done before. These are all traits that employers look for, that your past employment record will not show. Hopefully, my insight will assist in finding a job that suits not only your skills and abilities, but also your intellect and aspirations.

I received a email from Jobcase today that read - "Are employers looking at your Facebook profile, David?"
The email suggested cleaning up your social media while seeking employment. I agree and have done so myself. A personal friend that often hires new staff, told me that checking social media is one of the first things they do when looking into an applicants background.
You never know when a Facebook friend might post something that you don't particularly like, agree with or might even be off colored. I have often seen at time seen posts which show up on my page that I promptly remove. I'm sure you have as well. You don't want a hiring manager to see those.
Better than attempting to "clean up" your social media; I believe it necessary to go a bit further. Regarding Facebook; I have deactivated my account while seeking employment. In this age of "political correctness" it's impossible not to offend someone, especially someone who doesn't know you personally.
Deactivating does not close your Facebook account, rather suspends it for roughly a week. This mean of course that you will need to deactivate is regularly, but it's worth doing so for many reasons. Since some day when you are employed, you wont have someone virtually peeking in your widow to see what you are saying or doing; you wont want to start all over again. I sure don't. (posts, timeline info, photos)
Prior to deactivation, I placed a post in the Facebook noting that I would be dropping off social media for a bit and explained why. Gave it a couple of days for friends and family to read the post and then followed through with deactivating.
To Deactivate your Facebook (iPhone) a) While in Facebook and in news feeds, select "More" (at bottom right, has three horizontal lines above the word) b) Scroll down to the bottom and select "Account Settings" under Settings. c) select "Security" d) At the bottom and to the right of "Account", select "Deactivate" e) Enter your Facebook password and continue f) Under "Please let us know why you are deactivating" chose "This is temporary, I'll be back" g) at the pop up window, select "close" h) The pop up will disappear. Scroll to the bottom and select "Deactivate" i) a "Session Expired" window will appear. Select "OK" j) Close Facebook app
That's my suggestion - Cheers (and I'm not from England :-)
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?
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.
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??
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.
