A picture is worth a thousand words. Now, it could cost you that perfect job.
"You know it does reflect poorly on your image and that is a lot of what you are using to get a position when you are just coming out of college. Your resume is a little light so what you put out there on your image is extremely important," VVI Digital Strategist Tara Mueller said.
Twitter feeds like @jackspassedout and @yotespassedout show exactly that: students passed out. Mueller says the photos send the wrong message to potential employers.
"It's extremely important when you think about the way companies maintain and protect their reputation and even hire businesses for their reputation. College students or anyone looking for a job out there needs to be aware of what they are putting out on social media," Mueller said.
To Mueller, says it's also a good reminder to use those extra privacy settings when it's an option.
"I take it, personally, as a good thing. It makes me think that they are trying to protect their privacy and their personal privacy and people will even put out more of a business Facebook and a business Twitter," Mueller said.
Mueller also said something you should be careful about with Twitter is if you do leave it public, keep in mind since you are only allowed 140 characters that could lead to someone misinterpreting what you tweet.
That could also reflect poorly on you. So as she says, think before you Tweet.
