  13. 13. Social media Don’t post anything about your employer unless you are sure that it is your company policy.  Don’t post photos that are inappropriate. Although your profile may be private, there is always a way that information can be accessed by others.  Don’t accept those that you don’t know.  Don’t take it personally if recruiters or HR professionals from organizations do not accept you as connections…they may draw a line with candidates.  Don’t post any updates that you are not comfortable with all future employers seeing.  Post any inaccurate information about prior jobs. Consider this to be a public resume and ensure that everything can be validated.  Reach out to someone you don’t know and use a mutual connections name without checking with them first.  Ensure that your Facebook page is private. Often times your profile is set up so that friends within friends or group members can see your information.  Scrutinize what you and your friends post on your pages. Consider modifying your settings so that you have to approve posts. You never know what someone is going to write on YOUR wall.  Google yourself. Make sure that the results that come back are favorable. If they aren’t go through the process to try to get these removed. You want to make sure that your first impression is as positive as possible.  Manage pictures and tags. Pictures say a thousand words. Ensure that your pictures communicate an image that you what you want to say.  Get involved with media. Newspapers, magazines, local TV is a great way to be positively exposed. It always sounds like a good idea to be interviewed by the local news, just make sure the topic is neutral.
