When you apply for an open position, companies will look at your educational background and job experience to see if you are a proper fit for the company and job opening. They also may look into your social media profiles to see if they can grab any additional information about who you are. To ensure that they like what they see, think about making these changes to your existing social media profiles.
Keep Your Profile Updated
Some companies may research your social media pages to gain insight on your achievements, your educational background, or what you like to do in your spare time. It is important to keep your profile updated and to make sure that your email address, bio, and profile photos are current. Including a proper email address will make it easy for companies to contact you and for recruiters to reach out if they believe you would be a potential option for a job position. Your bio is also the first thing readers will notice when coming to your page. Make sure this grabs the attention of visitors and promotes your personal brand in a positive way. Lastly, make sure to link to your other social media accounts so they will have the option to skim through these pages as well.
Show Your Personality
Social media is a great tool to express yourself and show others what you believe to be important values in your life. Remember to get creative with your postings! Upload videos and photos that show your personality and are relatable. “Pin” your best postings to the top of your pages to grab the attention of visitors and “like” relevant pages and groups. On LinkedIn, add your accomplishments, organizations you are involved in, and skills that you believe make you a desirable candidate.
Be Mindful of What You Post
When it comes to posting different comments or interacting with others on social media, it is important to realize that your posts can be seen and read by decisionmakers at different companies. To improve your presence on social media, be mindful of what you are posting and engage with others in a professional manner. Your friends and colleagues can be very useful in endorsing your skills and accomplishments. For example, endorsing other’s skills on their LinkedIn profiles increases the chance that they will endorse yours as well! On Facebook, others can like and share posts of your achievements and increase your post’s visibility.
