If you are able to read this, chances are you have the following, if not the top two profiles:

1. Facebook

4. Tumblr

5. WordPress

6. GooglePlus

7. An E-mail account

Online etiquette is not taught in schools, maybe because it is still considered ‘new’ among those used to a world before we were dominated by social media and reading the morning paper on our phones.

It is also becoming one of the most important things to possess, as it has been reported that 77% of employers google potential employees.

Online etiquette is something that is extremely important once put in to perspective. Consider yourself, at this moment in time, an employer at the dream place you wish to work at.

In your head, you have the ideal employee, which technically should be yourself, right?

Now take a look at all of your social media and ask yourself, would I employ me? You may be surprised at what you think!

Remember that your social media profiles (much like your CV) are a personal reflection of you, regardless of whether it’s your personal life or not. If you choose to share inappropriate photos, or post offensive content – be prepared for the consequences.

Online etiquette can also be applied to e-mails, as a badly structured, or poorly written e-mail can completely ruin your chances of looking professional.

Examples such as this (see link) can aid you to creating bulletproof and concise e-mails that will hopefully get you the response you need. Make sure that you use the correct grammar and punctuation – after all, we live in a digital age where spellcheck is readily available, so take note of the red lines before you press the send button.

There are times where an employer can (and will) retract an offer for poor online presence. Regardless of whether it is your personal profile, you are choosing to expose yourself publicly on the internet – which means your profile will be scanned when considering you for a role.

Finally, clean up each social media account you use, regularly update and think of your social media as a reflection of you, and if you would not employ yourself, it is highly unlikely that anybody else will.
