What You Shouldn’t Post On Facebook If You Are Trying To Get A Job

The headline sound harsh, but the numbers don’t lie. More and more employers are using Facebook amongst other social media outlets (Google +, Twitter etc.) to screen prospective employees. 69% (that’s close to 3/4) of employers say that they have rejected a candidate because of what they saw on their Facebook page.

The reasons for rejecting job candidates varied from prospective employees lying about qualifications to posting inappropriate photos, comments and negative feedback about previous employers. From the looks of things, your Facebook page can now easily be considered as a paperless attachment to your resume.

I think it’s safe to say Facebook is the new “permanent record.”

Do you think the content and activity on a prospective employees Facebook is fair game when it comes to evaluating them for a job position?
