The hype that social media created is not only beneficial for connecting with families and long lost friends. It can also be helpful in searching for a job. Job seekers who are also social media users reflect much more of themselves in social media. Employees’ online profiles can reveal their qualifications, professional experience and background information that employers are looking for.
Interaction with the company such as following page or subscribing on websites will lead the hiring committee how familiar you are with their products and services, thus earning you an edge when it comes to company and product knowledge.
If you are a job seeker, it is better to keep your profile clean– this is the best first impression that you want your future employer to have about you.
