Social Media and You

You’re getting older. Dropping the F bomb and posting blacked out pictures on social media outlets may not be the greatest ideas anymore. Your future employers and managers are creeping on you! Clean up your Facebook and Twitter with these helpful hints.

According to surveys conducted, 37% of hiring managers use social media to pre-screen job applicants. You want to represent yourself as “hireable” on your social media sites so you can reflect someone who is desirable for the workplace.

Before hitting send or post, ask yourself “What do I want to be known for?”.  Good judgement will always trump even the toughest privacy settings.

If you are applying for a position closely pertaining to the social media world, keep your online persona relative. Your posts could be shared to an audience other than your own.

Cleaning up your social media presence could be an easy and painless method of snagging your next job. Once your profile is clean, following company profiles will allow you to stay up on company developments and new job openings!

Take Your Workout Outdoors!

In preparation for swimsuit season, springtime is a great opportunity to bring your workout outdoors. Ditch the gym and follow these moves for a fun workout outdoors.

Playground Mountain Climbers
Find a jungle gym or playground ladder to move upward. You’ll work your core and upper body. Replace the Stairmaster with this workout.

Plyometric Incline Push-Ups
Instead of seated chest presses, find a step or bench to work your core, arms, and chest. Place your feet off and hands on the step. Lower yourself for a push up and push off the step with each rep. Try to come off the incline as high as you can.

Lateral Hops
Jump onto your nearest park basketball court! Moving sideways and facing forward, jump over and back, along the full court line. Repeat the action moving the other direction. Move both ways down the court twice.

Hill Sprints
Sprinting is a great way to quickly burn fat. Begin with jogging or walking to warm up. Complete 5 sets of sprinting 10 yards uphill with 15 seconds of rest in between. Time your sprints. Once your speed begins to decrease by 10%, discontinue sprints for the day.

Good luck with your pre-summer workout! Rover is already trying on speedos for the occasion.
