Let’s talk Social Media

How private should we keep our social media profiles from employers and recruiters? What types of content should we think twice about posting online if we want to get/keep our job? Should we let our freak flags fly on the internet or should we keep our profiles more curated? These are the golden questions!

In this episode, they cover:

    • Should there be a difference between how you present yourself on personal and professional social media accounts?
    • Do recruiters look at your social media profiles?
    • Is it ethical for recruiters to judge a job candidate based on their social media?
    • How to protect your privacy from coworkers and recruiters.
    • Is cancel culture a good thing? Is it ever productive to cancel someone?
    • The most common way young people are resigning… is posting on TikTok?!
    • The true impact of posting your opinions online.
    • The ethics of posting your kids on social media.
    • How social media is a valuable asset for businesses.
Let us know… Have you ever been fired or punished for something you posted on social media? What’s your stance on cancel culture? Would you post your kids online? We want to hear from you! DM us on Instagram!
