What employers don't want to see on your Facebook page

September 09, 2014

Being a college student myself, there is a transition to be had on social media after high school. Sadly it is time to delete all those embarrassing middle school "selfies" and just delete your Myspace all together. Here's some tips on what to keep and what you should probably delete off your Facebook and a few things you should add.

1.) Partying pictures are a no-no. This one is pretty plain and simple, if someone else posts a picture of you doing well, whatever you're doing, remove the tag. That way it isn't associated with your page at all. (But preferably have them remove the photo).

2.) There's no need to swear on Facebook or any social media form for that matter. If you have the mouth of a sailor maybe make a tumblr or some sort of other blog where you can voice whatever the heck you want.

3.) If you have friends that are listed under the family section as brothers or sisters, remove them. It may offend them, but just explain to them what you're trying to do and besides you don't exactly want their dirty laundry to be considered a blood line thing.

4.) If you were one of those people (sadly, like me) who made a lot of notes when you were younger, (my grammar was beyond saving), delete those too.

5.) Create a LinkedIn account your freshman or sophomore year of college. This really gives you a cutting edge in the field if you start building up your connections early.

6.) Post interesting and relative articles to your Facebook wall. Not only will this tell people what you want to do or love to do, it also make you looks intelligent. (Just be sure to read the article too, it may come up in conversation).

I hope some of these tips will help you prepare your social media for the real professional world! If you have any additional tips I'd love to hear them!
