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.

But you might not be as familiar with the newest member of the job search family: social media.

Sure, most people know how to use social media in their personal lives, but it actually has a lot of power to make (or break) your job search. 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

We hope you know this one already, but we have to mention it. Make sure any public information on your various profile is super clean. This doesn’t just mean profanities and party pics—you should also consider removing articles that are politically divisive or could be considered offensive, posts that are super random, long rants on a certain topic, and the like. SimpleWash is a great tool that can help you search your feeds for things to delete.
