Clean Online Presence
If a company is interested in hiring you, they will surely look into your online presence in this digital age. Remember you are an investment for this company, so they will want to know about as much as possible about their employee. The best way to have a clean online presence is to not have an online presence. But that is rare for most adults these days. You should have all of your profiles on private if you are worried about something on your social media that may be inappropriate. If you think a photo, status or link you shared is inappropriate, it’s best to delete it. Keep your online presence nonexistence or clean and you will have no problem with employers.
Would you walk into a brand new restaurant without looking it up online? Probably not, with everyone having easy access to the internet, it takes two seconds to review the restaurant. You should do the exact same thing with your future employer. Type their company name into Google. Look around their website to find out what their history, mission statement, and anything else that may be helpful to know. Check them out on social media and see how their branding comes off and what kind of reviews they are receiving from customers…and previous employees.
Before ending your interview, you will always want to ask questions in your interview. It will display that you are invested and mentally prepared to get the job even before the interview is done.
