According to a March survey by Ponemon Institute, 35 % of hiring managers use Google to check on job candidates, and 23 % look people up on social networking sites. About one-third of those web searches lead to rejections.

Social networks like

Facebook can affect your job

search and make you lose

your job, or the possibility of

employment. Before you

post information or pictures

on Facebook, make sure you

watch what you are saying.

You should alsoremember who your friends are. If you accepted your boss as a friend, be careful about what you say or what you post. Even if your employer is not your friend in Facebook, your boss can see your pictures through your friends because there are many ways to find out information about you through Facebook.

So don’t post pictures of illegal behavior like drug

use or alcohol abuse. Some also suggest that poor

writing and bad grammar in Facebook profiles

can raise a red flag about communication skills.

Insulting comments or complaints or radical

political positions also can call the attention of a

prospective employer. One job applicant indicated

in his Facebookprofile that he was a hacker, and

he was applying to be a computer security analyst.

Obviously, he didn’t get the job.

In a real life case, this young

man lost his job because of

this picture he posted in

Facebook.

In Switzerland, a woman

was fired because she

said she was sick, stayed

home, but used

Facebook during the day.

In the USA a school

suspended a teacher

for posting, I am p…

and I hate my students.

The next time you post on Facebook, remember that

everyone can see what you post and that you can lose

opportunities to get a job.
