Each platform plays by its own rules. Before you go job-hunting, take these three steps:
Scrub your social history by deleting any old profiles or photos you wouldn’t want a future boss to see. Use the grandmother rule: if a post would mortify Gran, delete it.
Make sure you have a consistent presence on at least two of the big four (Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter). Make your pages public. If you can’t stand spammers and opt to stay private, remember to accept follower requests regularly. Add links on each of your social profiles to your LinkedIn account.
Master what Jessica Miller-Merrell, founder of workplace resource site Workology, calls the social media mullet – you know, business in the front, party in the back! That means keeping about 70% of your posts businessappropriate and 30% personal. ‘Lead with the professional,’ she says. ‘Then add what makes you fun, which helps differentiate you.’
