BEWARE your online reputation.

It’s important to remember that social networks are public and there are consequences for what you post – even if your intensions aren’t malicious.

How to manage your online reputation

Keep language and tone professional

Never post something you wouldn’t be comfortable sharing with an employer

Photos, content and comments can give an employer an insight into your values, as well as confirm claims you make in your CV or at interviews

Use a professional photograph in your profile

Join relevant groups, follow employers, and write about your work experience

 

When used responsibly social media can be used to create and promote your own brand and sign post you to job opportunities
