I therefore advise that applicants strategically build their profile on the Web 2.0 and are cautious with private data. Even if they are not in an active application phase, because the network does not forget anything.

2. Be careful of party photos

Overview

So if the up-and-coming financial expert puts a party photo with a slipped shirt on the net in a Bierlaune, it could possibly even cost him the next job. Because if entries can throw an unfavorable light on you, ask the provider politely to delete them. Most providers are cooperative. However, the authors do not have a claim for deletion in their own contributions.

In many social networks, such as Xing, StudiVZ and Facebook, members can adjust their access to a certain extent. For example, Xing can rule out that the profile is searchable via Google and write other people to the guestbook. However, this requires knowledge about these possibilities, which are often hidden in the small print. The visibility of discussion groups can also be adjusted. For example, with Xing, you can prevent employers from taking part in the unemployed group.

3. avoid

Overview

  • Private photos, especially those with too much skin, in the leisure view or with private accessories (about a beer) in the hand
  • Negative comments about present or previous employers
  • Remarks about other persons
  • Careless quotes like "work is something unnatural. Laziness is divine ".
  • Inherited blog posts with spelling mistakes and false grammar
  • Unserious acting contacts
  • To private entries in guest books
  • Radical opinions on religion or politics

4. Show personality

Overview

Show personality on the internet - but with care and stay authentic. So hobbies can be an eye-catcher for potential employers, but not everyone is born a parachutist.

So if you are a volleyball or table tennis player, you should register these hobbies. Also with activities at social organizations, the fire brigade or a child welfare organization, applicants can accumulate positive points - if it is correctly dosed.

Positive personality signals are:

Overview

  • Social activities
  • Smart posts on blogs or forums to showcase your expertise
  • interesting hobbies
  • a uniform, clearly defined professional profile
  • a professional photo or a professional video

5. Show your competence

Overview

Competence is very much in demand among potential employers. If you have expert knowledge, you can prove it with clever blog posts. Or to document his know-how with entries on Xing or his own website.

It is also important that applicants build a consistent professional profile. Those who offer a belly shop with five different fields of activity are less professional than the candidate who is "only" an SAP expert.
