Here’s why Candidates Didn’t Get Hired Because of their social media image

It was a common suggestion that when you are in job search you should clean-up your social media posting which may hamper your chances, so that it projects your professional image. Recruiters are searching for the real stories of the candidates on their social media pages which may increase or hamper their shortlisting chances. Before you prepare for the interview make sure that you have clean chit on your social media pages such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Tumblr, and more.

Here’s why Candidates Didn’t Get Hired Because of their social media image

In some cases, the candidatesbehave really bad on their social media pages which made them less fit for the job role they applied. Make sure that you check your privacy settings and delete the things you wouldn’t want your future boss to see and keep in mind that if they don’t like it you wouldn’t work there anymore. If a company decided not to hire you because you’re expressed your views on social media about pay transparency, or racial diversity or LGBTQ rights or unions or whatever issues you are most interested in (or issues) you’re passionate about, then you’re not the right fit for the company. So here is some example which turned off recruiters to not hire the candidates because of their social media image.

● When a Candidate Was Arguing Aggressively

● When a Candidate Lied About Her Mom Dying

● When a Candidate Wore a Swastika in His Profile Pic

● When a Candidate for a Day-care Job Posted Memes from the Subreddit /ChildrenFallingOver

● When a Candidate Was Really Angry (and Cursing) About Sports

● When a Candidate Expressed a View Antithetical to the Company’s Values

● When a Candidate Posted Troubling Sketches

● When an Almost-Intern Posted About His Plans to Party All Summer
