We’ve talked about how Twitter can be useful in the job search, but we haven’t yet discussed how poor use of Twitter will have employers rejecting candidates immediately. More employers are tuning into social media and researching their candidates before and after interviews. This means candidates need to be cautious about what they post online.
I ran a Twitter search yesterday for various “Job Interview” tweets, and found 10 that are perfect examples of what not to tweet about a job interview. There is no need for me to add commentary on these, but simply put, curse words and anything negative about an interview/position will kill a candidate.
Check out the below 10 tweets, add in your thoughts in the comments section, and pass on to your network. While this should all be so obvious, many people just aren’t getting it.
