10 Job Hunting Tips For Social Media Profiles [INFOGRAPHIC]

Job hunting is fairly easier now than before because social media has become a mainstream channel for applicants and prospective candidates. However, the social platform is no excuse to slack off.

If you want to take advantage of social media as a tool for job hunting, you need a good understanding of the common mistakes candidates make in the search for a dream job, or at least a decent career.

Recruitment firm Reed Global has released a new infographic to share some tips for candidates to stand out among job hunters, and show some data on what recruiters want to find in an online portfolio or resume.

LinkedIn was the most popular social network for job hunting last year, with 93 percent of recruiters checking the portfolio and resumes of prospective candidates on the social platform for professionals. Facebook and Twitter followed with 66 percent and 54 percent, respectively.

In addition, the graphic revealed common mistakes that recruiters do not want to see in a social media profile: references to illegal drugs, sexual content, spelling and grammatical errors, and alcohol consumption.

Check out the infographic to learn how to maximize your job hunting prospects.
