Be very careful about your use of social networking sites such as Facebook.
Employers, HR and Recruiters routinely look up job applicants on Facebook, Google, Bebo, MySpace etc, so you need to be careful about what you post on-line.
The following applies to all these type of site:
1) Clean up so-called “Digital Dirt” before you start applying for jobs. Remove photos, content and any links that are less than lily white.
2) Make sure any content is positive! If you write negative content then you will be seen as a negative person.
3) Watch out for what your friends say… People may write things about you that seem funny or amusing – but will an employer see them that way?
4) If you’re in a job – Do not mention your job search!!
