It is quite obvious that we live in a modern tech savvy era.

Hence the question, do recruiters look at your social media profiles?

Studies has shown us that more and more recruiters make use of potential candidate’s social media platforms to see what type of personality you portray on your different social media profiles.
The typical things a recruiter will look at when visiting your Facebook profile for example is the “about” porthole. They will look at what you say about yourself and if that is in line with your cover letter of your resume.

They will also most definitely browse through your photo albums and take a good look at what type of photos you post and how you behave while out of your work environment.
Same applies for Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. The photos you post, together with the comments and things you share portray the first impression of yourself.
PS: You never get a second chance to make a FIRST impression!

So, with all that said… Be mindful of your activities on social media platforms!
