Complete Your Profile

It is important to share the right balance of professional and personal to make online influence.

Delete Inappropriate Posts, Pictures And Comments
Start the cleanup process by deleting religious, political or sexual content from your social media profile. Make sure your social network profile remains as private as possible. You can limit access to your profile by changing the social media settings. Appropriate yet interesting words can make your profile perfect for job hunt.

Remove Connections With People Who Can Make You Look Bad
Friends and acquaintances on your network can positively or negatively affect your social media profile. The best option is to ‘unfriend’ the people who can hamper your image in the eyes of potential employers. Don’t hesitate to remove connections that do nothing to improve your social media identity.

Network And Engage
The best way to find new job opportunities is to meet new people and build relationships with them. Social media offers an easy way to meet new people and interact with them through comments, likes and shares. You never know when you could meet someone that can help you find a great job. Like and follow the companies you are interested in and join the conversations. It will show you are knowledgeable about the subject that can make a good impression on the potential employers.

Blogs
Another great way to strengthen your professional network is to create your own Blog. Write about strong social issues, share your opinion, start discussion with other people in the field, demonstrate your knowledge and establish yourself as an expert. Blogs can help you grow, manage and improve your professional online presence.

Think Before You Post
Remember, always think before you post. Potential employers use social media website as an efficient tool to take a better look at your character. Refrain from giving them something that can potentially harm you professional image. Read and review everything before posting so you don’t have to worry about deleting or hiding them later.
