Employers Want To Know What Your Social Media Profile Says About You
Many people use social media to communicate. However, have you ever wondered if your profile could affect prospective employment opportunities?
I have as I know companies now check social media sites before extending an offer to a potential employee.
According to a survey conducted by CareerBuilder, “39 percent of hiring managers use social networking sites to research job candidates, up from 37 percent last year. Forty-three percent of those hiring managers say they have found information that has caused them not to hire a candidate, up 9 percentage points from 2012.”
If you would like to know what kind of profile you are sending to an employer, please read, “Is your social networking profile costing you a job?” by CareerBuilder. You may be as surprised as I was by the answer.
