When applying for jobs, pictures of being passed out on a couch or sitting with a bong could cost a job hunter an interview, according to a social media expert.
With graduation approaching and summer jobs opening up, cleaning up social-media profiles could help prospective job hunters stand out in the market. Jon Gelberg, Blue Fountain Media chief content officer, said students need to avoid any inappropriate posts and use their social media sites to their advantage. He said by demonstrating skills, talents and creativity, students have a better chance of getting hired.
Blue Fountain Media is a New York-based company that counsels clients on their social-media efforts and online reputations, he said.
