KEEP YOUR ON­LINE PRO­FILE PROFESH

Miss FQ - - How To -

FACE­BOOK – Facey has been around for more than a decade now, and all of us have pho­tos and posts that date back to days of poor de­ci­sion-mak­ing. But if you don’t want a fu­ture em­ployer to throw your CV on the slush pile, start culling now. Re­mem­ber that time you snuck out to a party or shared how much you hate your maths teacher? No, we don’t ei­ther. IN­STA­GRAM – Par­tic­u­larly if you work in the cre­ative in­dus­tries, In­sta­gram can be a great tool for giv­ing po­ten­tial em­ploy­ers or col­lab­o­ra­tors a sense of who you are and whether you’d be a good fit for them. But re­mem­ber that many com­pa­nies these days con­sider their em­ploy­ees ex­ten­sions of their brand, so any­thing re­motely NSFW isn’t go­ing to make you look a safe bet. SNAPCHAT – Ev­ery­thing on Snapchat can be screen­shot­ted and shared around, so if you wouldn’t want your post to go public, think twice be­fore pulling the trig­ger. TWIT­TER – We love a good celeb Twit­ter rant. But if you’re com­ment­ing on a con­tro­ver­sial is­sue, con­sider what all the re­ac­tions might be and weigh up if the po­ten­tial fall­out is worth it.
