You always heard about how facebook and other social networking sites help you getting jobs and know about companies before your job interview. But here we are going to tell you how Facebook can ruin your chances to get a job.
Someone will say that I made these up. Actually, I have been taking interviews for last 5 years now and I have seen most of them.
Here we go, the top 10 ways to use facebook to blow your chances for a job.
1 – Updating or posting facebook during interview. Also tweet during interview.
2 – Tell everyone on Facebook that you are going to apply for a job but doubt that you’re qualified for it.
3 – Update Facebook about sending your applications to bunches of companies and include all the recruiters. That way comapnies can see where else you are applying.
4 – Post a judgmental question about the prospective employer on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter

6 – Populate your Facebook page with ridiculous pictures of yourself and poorly written posts.
