If you are one Facebook please be warned that your social media habits could be ruining your career!

 

1.  If you’re “liking” stuff all the time.

Why this is bad? If have the time to be liking everything on your news feed then how do you have time to do your job? That is what your current or potential employer is going to think!

2.  Your profile pic.

Why does this matter? Because your future employer is going to google you! It may be their first impression of you, make it a good one.

 

3.    You’re using one email address for everything.

Use a professional e-mail address. Not a casual or unprofessional one like giantbooty58

 

4.  You haven’t set strict privacy settings on your account.

Make sure you monitor what other people see. Your friends might think a tag is funny but professionally it may not have the same comedic affect.

 

5.  Be careful of your friends.

Watch their comments, their pics and their posts. You are the company you keep.
