SmartLogic is always looking to meet and hire good people, so I keep my eye out for hiring and job-seeking advice. I’ve noticed a rash of sensationalist articles about how social media can hurt job seekers, like this article, which says you shouldn’t post a picture of yourself wearing something you wouldn’t wear to a company function. Some people would have to remove every picture of themselves not wearing a suit under that rule.
At SmartLogic, we know that your skills and experience are better indicators of your potential success than your social media profile or wardrobe choices. I recently wrote an article about why job seekers should ignore social media gurus who tell them to remove everything that shows they have a personality from their online presence. Check out the article to hear my thoughts.
