Social Media Updates ARE Costing Young People Jobs
Do you ever think about what you're going to post on Facebook or Twitter--whether it be a simple post or a picture. You really may want to think twice---especially if you're job hunting and you're between the ages of 16 and 34. New research finds that 10% of people that age have been turned down for a job because of a picture or a comment they made via social media.
Here's the very sad part of this research----even though a picture or a post could really hurt their chances at landing a job, 2/3 of young people say they don’t care – and will continue to post whatever they want online.
Crazy to think this---but IS being on Facebook is more important to young people than being employed? To me you still gotta pay the rent and make that car payment. Why let a silly pic or post cost you a gig? Just my "two cents!" With my daily Facebook posts--I always try to be positive, encouraging and fun!
