13 Things To Avoid Posting on Facebook When You Are Applying For A Job


Social media especially Facebook becomes a part of our daily lives. When we are happy, sad, dismay, angry, frustrated, excited and every feeling we have, often times we publish a post about it.  We post as well our gimmicks, travel, and other activities we have in Facebook to keep us active and show the world, what we are doing.  But if you are applying for a job, you should be very careful in what you post in social media.





Social media especially Facebook becomes a part of our daily lives. When we are happy, sad, dismay, angry, frustrated, excited and every feeling we have, often times we publish a post about it.

We post as well our gimmicks, travel, and other activities we have in Facebook to keep us active and show the world, what we are doing.

But if you are applying for a job, you should be very careful in what you post in social media.


"Remember that some recruiters and managers would usually take a look at your social media account as part of their due diligence and whatever they see could influence their decision, whether to hire you or not," according to Philjobnet, a web-based labor market.




Here are 13 Things that are No-No's in Social Media, especially in Facebook!

1. Pictures of you drinking, it may be an old picture or a new one it shouldn't be there out there on the internet.





2. Photos that make you look bad in any way if you feel that you have posts that will make you look unprofessional you may want to take it down.

3. Tags from friends who make you look silly or irresponsible. Sometimes we have friends who like posting or tagging us inappropriate posts.

4. Nude pictures of any kind is a big no-no, you should never post these kinds of photos on your page if want to get hired.



5. Political posts that will show your affiliations, it's safer not to be associated with any political party or movement, it makes you a more attractive candidate than if you are a known supporter of a political figure.

6. Foul language, of course, is another thing to eliminate on your online folio, if ever you have this online it's time to clean up your page.

7. Inappropriate posts, anything that is not going to help you with your job application should not be on the internet.

8. Avoid posts that tend to berate people or yourself, it is not going to help.



9. Excessive posting of your obsessions, there is nothing wrong with posting your favorite sport for example, but if the only thing that your future employers see is people playing basketball it may not help you land a job.


10. Pranks of any kind, jokes are okay, but if you like posting pranks on your page it would be better if refrain from doing so.

11. Bad comments about anything will not benefit your job application, stop writing them.

12. Complaints whether valid or not is not a good thing to see on your social media page.


13. Distasteful words about your past employers is never a good thing, be mindful of what post, if you've already posted in the past about your recent employer it's best to hide or delete it.


Yes, it is our account and yes it is our right to post what we want. But when it comes to the possibility of our employment, of course, we do not want an opportunity to fly simply because of our careless post.
