What Employers Look For When Stalking Your Social Media

Published

Employers stalk your social media and not just your LinkedIn.

It is very easy to get a sense of who you are by stalking your social media. You have probably put all the right information on your LinkedIn then forgotten all your other social media accounts. You’re probably private but accept everyone and anyone so information can still be seen and tracked. Let’s not forget that the internet never forgets so at the end of the day you will never be a ghost on social media as long as you have posted at any point.

1. They will check how you describe yourself

Do you know how every social media platform has an “about me” part? If you opened your Facebook account when you were 15, you probably mentioned how much you loved the mall and cartoons, now that you’re an adult you need to update your profile and ask yourself “what would an employer think?” if they saw this? They will want to know if who you have described yourself on the CV and the person that you wrote about on the page actually match. They will also be checking your grammar because this shows the level of seriousness you actually give yourself as a person. If you can give out a professional and authentic look on social media then you’re more likely to be serious as a person, which is a great thing.

2. Who do you follow?

Yes, trust that there’s someone who will have the time to check the pages and people you follow. They will probably be looking to see if you actually follow serious people or companies that are in line with your career. Following others in your industry is a smart thing to do no matter what, watching their feeds can give you a scoop on a new job opening, company announcements, the latest tech and much more. If the only people you’re following are musicians and love& hip hop then you’re not someone who will appear to be serious and that’s just the reality.

3. Photos and captions

What do you post under photos when you post them? Using bad language to describe yourself like ” bad gyal b**tch” won’t cut it. Do you say inspirational things? do you post with purpose? What kind of photos do you post? Do they make you look unserious and like a teenager? Be very careful what you post, if you keep posting photos of you out in the club with booze and shisha then a hirer will most likely assume that you will spend most of your time out and perceive you as unserious.

4. Where have you been tagged?

What kind of posts do people tag you in? This tells a lot about you because if the only posts you’re tagged in are of the next party coming or of you drunk on a couch somewhere then there’s a problem. Always tell people to not tag you in things that can ruin your reputation.

5. The posts people post on your wall if it’s on Facebook

What kind of posts do people publish on your wall? And what’s your response? Limit vulgar language at all times, don’t post useless memes and never post anything sexual. Remember that your social media profiles open doors to other opportunities.

Haraka Haraka app to link customers with service providers

Published

Loading...

A new App dubbed “Haraka Haraka” has today been unveiled in Kenya to help customers find the right service providers in their current location within a specified range of choice.

The platform was invented by three former Meru University of Science and technology students and with the app, they seek to make it easier for people to find services such as a plumber, retailers, shops and house agents that have been difficult to get physically.

The team, Mr Kelvin Muinde, Mr Pius Momanyi Nyachio and Mrs Naum Mutie said there are currently about 3,500 users who are potential clients and service providers on the platform who include carpenters, hairdressers, plumbers and mechanics, and more.

“We are taking away the burden of searching for experienced and reliable professional businesses in a hassle-free model to deliver critical services to individuals who are in need of their specific location,” said Pius Momanyi Nyachio who is the Marketing Manager.

Mr Kelvin Muinde, who is the head of the project said the idea to start Haraka Haraka was initiated out of his observance of people having difficulty in finding a reliable service in an area that they are not well conversant with.

“The biggest challenge customers face is finding the right service providers at any area, mostly if you are not familiar, most people end up getting poor services that cost them time and resources,” he said.

To find any service or to register as a service provider, individuals are requested to first download the Haraka Haraka App on Google and register where later one can choose a range between 100m to 30km to find the service they are in need of.

The app also comes with an option of reviewing and rating a service provider which acts as an advantage to next service seekers enabling easy referrals to new clients.

‘’The registration to the app is free for both users and professionals,’’ said Mr Kelvin Muinde. The company’s aim is to hit 10,000 users by the end of this year. Ideally, they plan to have a maximum of 30,000 professionals on the platform.
