Is your Facebook page sabotaging your brand?
In this day and age you need to be careful about what you post via your social media.
Let's face it, employers are likely to look you up online so they will probably find that photo album from "Max's 18th!!!!" where you are passed-out drunk in a hedge somewhere. Not going to look too great to the employer is it? So how do you successfully use social media to portray yourself as a professional, yet still keep it so you can have fun?
Well, the easiest solution would be never get drunk and stupid in the first place but as this is the 21st century and you are probably at uni, well that's just not going to happen. Therefore make sure you monitor what you are posting online. Especially when it comes to photos. If you see a lot of bad ones going up then un-tag yourself. It's your future, you should do everything you can to protect it.
