Job Seeker, Presentation MISTAKES!!

I could go through every element and the critical nature of presentation. In the future I most definitely will. However I wanted to cover a few different ways job seekers are being evaluated, and how you could get ELIMINATED before you ever get a chance. Names!

 

OK, on the surface, you are thinking what about my name? No, I am talking about screen names. We use screen names for a myriad of things. What we choose to use for a screen name can often say a lot about us. Here are a few examples:

 

- Email: Yes: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  NO: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

- Skype: Yes: Your Name/Job Title NO: SexySingleinTexas

- Twitter: Yes: Your Name NO: LookingForLoveOnline

- Facebook: Yes: Your Name NO: LonelyHouseSpouse

 

You may be laughing, however I cannot tell you how many people are using emails or screen names, let’s say from a different phase in their life. I promise you, employers do not find them cool or that you have a personality. They see them as a serious red flag. If you have a funky email, Skype, or screen name on social media, either change it, make it private, or eliminate it.

Job seeking is uber-competitive, every little detail matters. Don't get passed over due to a silly or odd screen name. Clean it up and get hired!!
