In the spirit of another semester ending, we’re taking a trip down memory lane. Here are the top three memories that really ticked us off in grade school and made our memories even more enjoyable.
Come on, rain. Really? No swings, slides, four square, or kickball. Just sitting in an overcrowded classroom, attempting to play boring board games.
Reading Aloud in Class
Ah, the days where reading textbooks out loud in class was completely normal and feeling completely embarrassed as you stumble over the passage was very common. Key to not getting called on: Avoid eye contact at all costs!
Sitting next to your best friend was never an option, but sitting next to your secret crush, the class bully, or the smelly kid always seemed work out perfectly.
Now look at you; you’ve come so far from grade school days!
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!
