Social Media has changed over recent years and and is now used as a platform to advertise employment and also seek employment. This is the first place employers now advertise, as it’s free and reaches thousands of potential employees.
Social media is a great way to stay connected with friends, family and stuff you like, but with some tweaks and a slightly different focus, it can also be a powerful tool for attracting potential employers.
Show them the best version of you
Posting about your passions, projects and achievements lets employers know that you are ambitious, productive and talented outside of work. Even things you might consider normal could contribute towards making a great impression.
Having an opinion, views on current events and more generally just expressing your individuality is great, but how you express yourself can have an impact on the way employers may see you. Posting content with profanities, abusive language, lewd remarks etc can reflect really poorly on you, especially if taken out of context. So when you post something online, keep this in mind.
