Is Social Media Affecting Your Job Search?

Is your Facebook profile affecting your job search?

If you are not getting the interviews you want, your Facebook profile may be the cause. A survey by CareerBuilder (an online employment agency) has found that 37% of hiring managers use social networking sites to research job applicants, with over 65% of that group using Facebook as their primary resource.

In the past, employers relied primarily on the interview to determine a candidate’s suitability and, if you were a candidate for a high profile position, discrete surveillance by a private investigator. Today, thanks to social media, practically everything is online. Companies therefore routinely use social media to screen their employees during the hiring process. What you post on Facebook, Twitter or even your personal blog can in fact make or break you.
