February 11, 2013

It’s no secret that these days social media can play a big part in the recruitment process – LinkedIn especially for obvious reasons!

While this is great for many people who are interested in new career opportunities, beware – many hiring managers will Google prospective employees to gain a further insight into them, and if your social media profiles leave a negative impression then you could wave goodbye to your next offer.

This infographic from Smarterer shows how your social profile could help you land or lose a job.

Interestingly, apparently bad spelling and grammar is worse than references to alcohol!

  • 86% of recruiters review candidates’ social network profiles

  • 1 in 7 employee referrals is hired
