What you post on social media could have serious repercussions on your professional life. It could cost you your current job or job opportunities in the future.
According to a 2018 CareerBuilder survey, 70 percent of employers use social media to screen candidates during the hiring process, and about 43 percent of employers use social media to check on current employees.
Managers look at social media accounts for an array of reasons, but many employers want to make sure a candidate will be a good fit with their company.
"Because we tend to view our personal social media accounts as being 'personal,' there's a good chance that by viewing someone's profile, you'll get a glimpse into their personality beyond the resume," said DeeAnn Sims, founder of SPBX.
