View Facebook through the eyes of potential employers
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2013 10:46 AM

View Facebook through the eyes of potential employers While it is fine for job seekers to have a Facebook profile, they need to be careful about what they share on their personal wall. More people than their friends may be looking at their status updates, pictures and videos.

Fortunately, it is very easy for Facebook users to find out what people outside of their social network can see. All job seekers need to do is click the cog-shaped icon in the top right corner of the screen and select "Privacy Settings." On the left side of the page, Facebook users should click "Timeline and Tagging" and turn their attention to the "Who can see things on my timeline?" category. The "Review what other people see on your timeline" feature allows them to see what people on the Web would see if they visited the page of someone they are not friends with.

This process gives job seekers a chance to see how much their Facebook page could hurt their employment prospects. This is becoming more important with each passing day, as Jobvite recently revealed that many recruiters visit Facebook to learn about prospective employees, Mashable reported.

With their Facebook page no longer a hindrance, job seekers can dedicate their time to taking an aptitude test, networking and anything else that will help them land their dream gig.
