Based on the responses to a 2012 survey conducted by Adecco Staffing US, 70 percent of hiring managers believe that the presence of compromising content on millennial job seekers' social media pages can become a problem for them when interviewing for a position. As a result, millennials, and job seekers from other generations, should clean up their social media profiles before they apply for a position.
The results of a career test might say job seekers are the perfect fit for the type of company they are applying to. However, if hiring managers can freely browse their Facebook profile, pictures and comments they posted long ago could come back to haunt them. This is why CBS MoneyWatch suggests they check their Facebook privacy settings before they sit down for an interview.
If job seekers use Twitter, they are going to want to look over their page and consider deleting a few tweets if they tend to post too often. After all, someone who is always updating their Twitter feed appears to have a lot of time on their hands, according to the news source.
