Looking for a new job?
Whether you are active on social media or not, your choices have both benefits and pitfalls for your job-search and professional life.
- Employers google candidates.
- Recruiters google candidates.
- Candidates google everybody.
If you have no or little presence on social media, you’re failing from capitalising on free tools that might as well propel you to the top of a long list of candidates for your dream job.

The answer is somewhere in the middle, sprinkled with a healthy dose of professionalism, carefully chosen privacy settings, some smart google maneuvering and lots of best practice tips.
And this is precisely why I created the #CAREERBOOST CARDS, a set of 43 compelling images with tips about how to smartly use social media to establish yourself as a thought leader in your industry and have recruiters find you instead of the other way around!
