How many of us created our social media profiles, maybe aside from LinkedIn, to interact socially? And how often do you look back at your profile to check if it is still a relevant representation of yourself?
With increasing cross-over between online between work and home life, especially via social media platforms, it is important to ensure that the content is suitable - professional enough for a potential employer to be satisfied, as well as giving insights into our personality and interests. Employers often check out potential employees either before offering an interview or once an interview is organised. This will include reviewing their social media accounts. There are lots of positives to this, your profile can give a real insight into your hobbies and personality, bringing your CV to life instantly.
The key is to ensure that your profiles are current and suitable for business as well as for your personal contacts. So how do we create the right online image for ourselves to ensure that it is appropriate for us socially as well as when we apply for jobs?
