How Social Media Can Affect Your Job
In today’s world social media has taken us by storm. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and the list goes on. Anderson Hoare social media helps candidates learn about potential jobs. Anderson Hoare recruits PA’s, EA’S and receptionists. Therefore the candidates must be well rounded.
I am here to help you young/new candidates be aware of the importance of how much you should share on social media. By speaking to the team, they told me the dos and don’ts of social media.
Anderson Hoare social media guide:
Are you posting inappropriate information?
People at times do not seem to know when they are putting up information, photographs or messages that are not suitable for all and sundry to see. Even though social media is for personal use, you must remember that you are also representing your work. As you will be taking on a role of a PA or EA. The Anderson Hoare team strongly recommend that you keep your social media clean. This means photos from a night out to sharing videos which could cause offence to others and to you.
Complaining About Your Job or Boss
Letting the world know how you feel is sometimes not the best option. Especially if you’re mad and it’s either about your job or boss. Even when you think your posts are safe from your boss, a colleague might be able to forward it to him or her. As a PA/ EA this will not be good as you are working personally with your boss. This could then lead you to getting a bad reputation for yourself. As he/she will let others know what you have done.
Socialising rather than working.
It is important to remember that you are taking care of someone’s life. Candidates must always be engaged with the task at hand. Many companies/bosses now regulate the history of visit sites on office computers. They are aware that employees waste much of their time on social media sites. The team at Anderson Hoare are looking for people who are engaged and will perform to the best of their ability.
