Did you know that 79% of recruiters say that they check candidate’s social media profiles prior to making decisions?

That’s enough to make anyone think twice about what they post on Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest.

Shockingly, 70% of Recruiters said that they have actually rejected potential candidates based on what was found online.

Want to know why?

• 53% of recruiters who had rejected candidates said that it had been due to provocative or inappropriate pictures being posted;
• 44% had used proof of drinking or drug use as the reason;
• 35% named online slandering of a colleague or employer as the reason.

Moral of the story: Consider what it is that you put out there because this makes up your Personal Brand. If you wouldn’t want employers to see it, then DO NOT post it.
