Employers will scope you out online at some point during the screening and hiring process. What you consider hidden behind a curtain of privacy may not be. Your personal status updates may be impacting your ability to land your next job. Keep your discussions free from these damaging mentions.
1. Just say no to drugs. Referencing illegal drugs is the most damaging thing you can do to your job search. According to Jobvite's 2013 Social Recruiting Survey, more than 80 percent of recruiters said seeing mentions of illegal drugs in a candidate's social updates left a negative impression. Stay away from any mention of drugs, even if you're joking, or run the risk of ruining your reputation.
