Description

Social media has the effect of bringing out both the worst and best in us. On the one hand it enables us to connect with like-minded people who share our values and opinions transcending geographical boundaries. At worst, it works as an echo-chamber limiting our world views and bringing out the most judgmental aspects of our natures. But what does it mean for many of us professionally?

The views we reflect online in a moment of anger can come back to haunt us long after that moment has passed. We often, unknowingly, open ourselves to scrutiny and judgement by strangers.

Today, many organisations resort to social media to shortlist candidates for promotion and employment. Your online presence can be curated to reflect the best parts of yourself.
