Snap. You post a selfie of you and your horse on Instagram.
@caitylandhorse great round! wanna get pizza l8tr? You tweet your BFF about dinner.
Social media seems harmless and it usually is, but remember you aren’t the only one that can see your posts, pictures and comments. And that delete button sometimes doesn’t make silly mistakes go away from the internet either.
So what, right? Well, just be careful. The pictures of you and a horse might not be so bad, but, when you post pictures of a party you attended last night and you weren’t in the best state.. that’s a little different. You might not care, but your future employer will.
Your employer, college admissions adviser and possibly parents will all check your social media profiles. Don’t post anything that you wouldn’t want your mother to see, let alone ruin your chances at getting a job. The job market is tough, so don’t make it tougher on you!
