Best of HR – Berufebilder.de®

Caution!

The perfect cover letter has been created, the CV has been thought through from front to back and the application photo shot. Easily forgotten applicants, however, a component which for most recruiters has now become as self-evident as the daily cup of coffee: the Internet - it never forgets, at least not without its own.

In particular, privately used social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are in reality often only pseudo-private and often unintentionally reveal information that the HR attract negative attention and for the early end on the way to dream job can worry.

What does privacy mean?

"He mustn't look at that!" some may think outraged here that private network activities should have no influence on the evaluation of a potential new employee. In theory, including social media is actually a legal gray area.

The opinions of lawyers differ on whether the data is publicly or non-publicly accessible. According to last year's Monster Recruiting Trends, 55 percent of the top 1.000 bet Company Strategically employ social media in their recruitment and use social media for job advertisements, information searches, image advertising and active search for candidates.

5 quick to implement tips for the use of social media in job search and application

But how can applicants now actively use social media for themselves and their job search? 5 practical, fast-acting tips at a glance:

  1. Keep track: Over the years, a lot of data has accumulated on various platforms that are more focused on the private sphere, which do not necessarily flatter their professional image: You may find the photo of the merry pool party two years ago amusing - but a personnel officer does not necessarily share this opinion . Not only what you post yourself consciously, but also pages and people you follow or “like” could have consequences.
  2. Always pay attention to your privacy settings: Operate from time to time "Ego-Google ”or create a Google Alert on your name. Setting up and tidying up all of this takes some time and effort, but it is worthwhile once it has been done correctly. Because even a small “clean-up” can be an indication of how carefully you work and, above all, what makes you tick as a person for the recruiter.
  3. Stay present nevertheless: That doesn't mean that you should hide all your accounts and pretend you don't exist on the web. Knowledge of social media is in demand in many professions these days or even a minimum requirement. Now that all the stressful materials in the drawer "Only for friends" have disappeared, you can use the wide world of the Internet to position yourself positively.
  4. How to use social networks for yourself: You want to go through photography and have already experiences? Then show it on platforms like Instagram. Do you like to write blog posts in your spare time? Then post these posts publicly. Alternatively, you can also visit the company page, the relevant specialist media or persons.
  5. Keep an eye on Active Sourcing: Many companies are now active sourcing, ie they are looking for social media profiles of applicants for information. The decisive factor, therefore, is in any case, to have the motivation for action of the staffer in mind and which is always to find the optimal new appointment, which fulfills all requirements and also fits personally into the company.

Summary

Everything sounds rather banal, but is often forgotten. Especially in times of active sourcing and Co., one's own social media presence can be decisive in the fight for the dream job. Would not it be nice to be ahead of your competitors?
