45 Things Successful Job Seekers Do on Social Media

If you’re a smart job searcher, you have probably researched everything there is to know about resumes, cover letters, interviews, and all of the other job-searching basics.

Studies have shown that 92% of companies are using social media for hiring—and that three out of four hiring managers will check out a candidate’s social profiles.

So how can you tap into the power of social media (and avoid the pitfalls)? We’ve gathered all the tips you need to use every platform out there to your advantage.

1. Get Everything Squeaky Clean

SimpleWash is a great tool that can help you search your feeds for things to delete.
