Job candidates 'must be wary of social media posts'

People applying for a new job need to be very wary of what they post on social media websites, as this could compromise the application process, one expert has noted.

Charlie Ryan, director at Recruitment Queen and CMR Recruitment, said that those applying for new roles, such as sales recruitment candidates, could jeopardise their chances of success by posting something that a potential employer would frown upon.

The expert noted that it is "easy" to find jobs at the moment, with the main problem being finding the right candidates for the job.

He explained that people who fail to correctly use social media sites could find that their chances of recruitment are permanently harmed.

"They need to control their media profile. They need to be using the social media sites in a professional way and discussing their careers online," Mr Ryan added.

Another way of harming a person's chances of gaining employment is by lying on their CV, according to Peter Panayotou, senior consultant at the Write Stuff.

He recently noted that people who embellish their CVs could not only harm their chances of employment, but risk being fired if they are hired and the employer finds out at a later date.
