51% of employers report that they did not hire someone because of content on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter or any other social network.
Here’s the scary part. Think about all the pictures and comments on your profile. Are they something you think will hurt or help your chances of getting a job? Here’s the bad news: your next employer is going to look at your social media profile. The good news? Your social profiles can tell a positive story about you and actually help you get your next job.
Employers look at your profile for lots of reasons. They want to know if you will damage their brand and company culture or if you will fit in with the team and be a credit to the company. If you’ve got photos, posts and comments that don’t make you look like a dependable, trustworthy person the team can count on, the time to clean up is before you apply.
