3 Social Media Mistakes that Can Cost You Your Job

Better safe than sorry” is the motto job seekers and employees alike should adopt when it comes to posting on social media.

Social media is search-engine friendly, and many wrongly assume that when they post something, only those they are connected with will see it.

In today’s world, employers, co-workers and potential customers and future employers are searching online to learn more about you.

Here are three common errors on social media that can keep job seekers from getting hired and get employees fired:

Careless posting

Dashing off a tweet as you race into a meeting might not be so smart. A recent survey discovered that 66 percent of recruiters reconsidered candidates because of spelling and grammar errors in their social profiles.

While you’re at it, slow down and reread your post to make sure it’s not offensive.

Dishing dirt about former or current bosses, employers or colleagues

It’s tempting to vent when you’re feeling annoyed after a bad day at work, and social media makes it so easy to do so. But beware of being critical of employer, bosses or co-workers online, even if you no longer work with them.

Your boss is probably more social media savvy than you think and posting dirt on his or her can lead to immediate termination.

Failing to take control of your digital identity

It’s not only what you post but what you remove from your social media profiles that makes a difference. Do a little auditing, you should conduct a thorough search of your name via Google, Bing and Yahoo. Keep track of all your social media accounts and ensure that your profiles accurately display who you are.
