Good manners can go a long way
For all the preparation that goes into a successful interview, first day at work, first date (all firsts really), there are two very basic things to remember:
- be yourself
- be nice
They’re pretty easy to remember but also too easily forgotten. To be honest, I’d forgotten about them – because they’re now second-nature – until I saw these great tweets from Social Media Strategist Emily Thomas:

So I decided to enter The Lecture Room into the UK Blog Awards! Goes without saying, I WANT TO WIN. But that’s not my only motivation.
The “theme” for the 2015 awards is ‘Be Bold’ (#BeBold). A theme that is more than suited to what we’re about. Study, work or play, if you want to stand out and do your best you have to be bold.
So I’m leading by example; win or lose this blog is now on a platform for even more people to see – and hopefully grow to love

When it comes to looking for a job, there are certain things you wouldn’t bother doing because it doesn’t matter to you. However, to others, such things play a crucial role in determining who you are. For instance, do you know that cleaning up your Facebook profile increases your chances of getting hired? Well, it does, but unfortunately not many people take this into consideration.
You never know who is searching your information online. It could be your next employer! So, be proactive about what they will find on your profile. So why will potential employers want to look for your information on Facebook even though you have already provided them with all the documents that identify you? Well, they want to figure out or rather prove if the information you presented is correct. And because of the increased popularity of search engines, they will find your information on the internet easily.
With that said, how can you achieve this? You need to add a presentable cover photo, hide or delete information that you don’t want to be seen, and highlight some of your best posts. Don’t take chances ensure that the information on Facebook shows who you are.
