Think before you tweet or post!
General: Posted 26-3-14 Deadline - No Deadline
Posting comments on social media sites about your dissatisfaction at part-time work or school has the potential to backfire and be very embarrassing – or worse! “We’ve seen examples where employees have said something derogatory about their employer on Twitter or Instagram using hashtags such as #boredatwork , #hatemyjob or #hatemyboss,” says Nick Deligiannis, Managing Director of Hays in Australia & New Zealand. “Social media has become so ubiquitous that tweets or Facebook posts can be linked quickly...in fact, many employers will actively search social media during the recruiting process of a potential candidate and if they find evidence of such behaviour, even if it is in the past, it wouldn’t give positive signals and may prevent a person from being hired. Being aware of your digital footprint is hugely important in today’s – and tomorrow’s market.” This also applies to university scholarships. So think of the photos and comments on your Facebook and other accounts. What image do they give of you to a potential employer or scholarship fund?
