Preparing Your Online Profile for a Job Hunt

Just as most of job applications are now done entirely online, a lot of employee screening is also done online. According to a survey by Workopolis, 93% of employers say that they will search for a potential employee’s social media profile during the interview process.
LearnWhat this means for job seekers is that if you haven’t already, it is time to clean up your social media. That does not mean close all of your accounts; it is 2015 and employers know that social media exists. What it means is that any inappropriate pictures, tweets or posts that would likely get your application should be taken offline.
