The average person looking for a new sales executive role may not think that their Twitter profile or Facebook page will draw the sort of attention which celebrity pages can, but an increasing amount of employers are looking at them.
Denise Taylor, a career psychologist and author of How To Get A Job In A Recession, told Personnel Today: "Having a good online reputation applies to any professional."
She explained that people need to look at their profiles as they think an employer would, saying: "Check up on yourself and be objective."
Things to particularly avoid include making any negative comments about a current job and having inappropriate pictures or inflammatory comments.
However, candidates can use their online presence to their advantage, with journals and industry blogs being seen as a plus point by employers.
