Your social media presence is more important than you ever imagined.


If you are looking for a job in today's competitive market, start rethinking how you use your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and more. Even if you do NOT provide your social media links for hiring manages on your resume or application – guess what? They look you up anyway, according to this outstanding infograph from

Three out of four hiring managers check out your social profile whether you provide the information or not. And one out of three hiring managers reject a job candidate based on something they found in the candidates social media profile.

Make sure your social media presence portrays the kind of potential employee that hiring managers,company owners and department leads would like to bring on board. Clean out the college party pictures and “nastygram” messages about the old boyfriend or off the chart spring break.

Get to work! Please pass this along to the job seekers in your life!
