Job Search Tips (Part 15): Social media in the job search

In this week's video, we're gonna go over social media in your job search. That's coming up! Social media is a double-edged sword. It can hurt your job search, just as much as it can possibly help it. Actually, 56 percent of employers say they might take a peek at an applicant's social media profile before offering the job. Ask yourself. If your online self was interviewed, would you still get the job? Well, you seem to be a great fit for the position. I just have a few questions about some things I saw online. Um. Ok. I see a tweet that says can't believe that lame job fired me.

You just said you had to leave because it was a seasonal position. Can you explain that? I mean I left at the end of the summer so it was only for the season. Technically, I guess you could say I got fired, but I only flaked on a few shifts. Well then. Oh, wow! Is that you in this video yelling at a customer? Well, they deserved it. It's not my fault they didn't agree with me. I didn't even yell that loud! I'm starting to think this might not be the job for you. But, wait! If you go on my Facebook, I posted a status about loving my last job! But you said you loved it for the pay and the free food. So, did I get the job? Oh, man. Really?! As you can see, social media can have a huge impact on your job search.

We all like to have a little fun online, but make sure your online personality reflects how you want to be seen in the real world. In fact, just keep your social media profiles private so employers can't see it. Unfortunately, likes and followers just won't land you the job. Big shoutout to Latoya Kidd for requesting this video.
