Be Advised: Your Employer May Be Checking Your Facebook Profile
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Years ago, when a person went in for a job interview, the employer would ask about his previous jobs, and he would ask questions pertaining to the job the person was interviewing for. Employers still ask these questions. Now, however, they go a step further. They check the applicant's Facebook profile. Some things are fine to post on Facebook and the other social networks. Other things, however, should not be posted.

One thing you can post is a picture of your dog. Many people have dogs for pets. They love them dearly, and they treat them as a member of the family.

If you are selling something, such as handmade jewelry, you can post a picture of what you are sellng. If your friends are interested in it, they can contact you to find out how much it is. You may be able to make some money if your friends follow through and buy from you.

Around Thanksgiving and Christmas, many people look for recipes for dishes such as green bean casserole. You might consider posting your recipe for a dish like this. Those who are trying to find a recipe for green bean casserole will appreciate you for saving them some time.

While some items are alright and perfectly acceptable to post online, other items should not be posted. Refrain posting these items in order to avoid some problems.

One item you will want to refrain from posting is a picture of a wild night with friends. Many people go out with their friends. They might go to a movie or a sporting event. The evening may include some drinking. Enjoy a fun, safe night and the memories of the night when it is over. Be careful what pictures you post online, however. Pictures of you dressed up for your night out are fine. Pictures of you drinking with your friends are not. If pictures of you drinking are posted online, an employer may see them and believe that you are not a good fit for his company. He will then think twice about hiring you. You will also want to avoid posting anything that might be considered controversial, offensive, or otherwise objectionable. If you are unsure of whether or not to post something online, remember "When in doubt, don't." If it is likely to offend, embarrass, or bother others, it does not belong on Facebook or anywhere else.

Enjoy Facebook. It is a great way to connect with others. If you are careful about what you post, you can have a great online experience, and your job will be safe.
