Social Media 4 Job-seekers 101

The Real You v’s The Blue You: You don’t have to be squeaky clean, but it certainly helps your chances of landing a job, succeeding at interview, or selling yourself, your company or product if your ‘Online Profile’ looks a bit more like the person Isitting in front of me!

I can’t tell you how often I have been turned off a promising candidate after I’d had a look at their Social Media profile. Being one thing on paper, another in person and yet another online can lead to all sorts of problems at interview time. Don’t be a ‘Jeckyl and Hyde’, be yourself and be true to that person, in reality, in life and online.
