Hiring & Firing based on your social media

Did you know employer are looking at what you make public on social media? Most of you will say “tell me what I don’t know & why should I care?” You may think think it’s none of their business what you say on line & on your own time. Technically your right, it is a free country & we always talk about freedom of speech. This is what you should think about. When an employer is thinking about hiring you, this is what they are looking for:

1. Are you a respectable person. Do you treat your friends with respect

2. How often do you party

3. Do you share information that should not be shared

4. Do you swear on line & often

5. Do you share positive thoughts

6. Do you share or promote your friends

Basically who is the real you. Would they feel good as you as the face of their brand?

Employers also will use the same focus on if they need to fire you. Give me a break if your talking bad about your company, they will find out. Also if you post it online then the site your own can be asked by the courts to give them information. Social media sites are private businesses and if you look close enough & read the fine print you will see you give them the right to do as they please.

Avoid the stress don’t put anything on the web you don’t want the WORLD to know about. Plus this is a great way to save you from unemployment.
