Personally I would not hire anyone who posts personal information on social media. I don’t have any social media and I don’t trust people who do. The only caveat to this is people who conduct their business on social media.

Almost every recruiter and supervisor will research you on social media now in days. It’s crazy to post political and/or religious opinions online and then not expect people to judge you based on how your represent yourself.

I will say I’ve had potential employers express their hesitation with hiring me based on the fact I don’t have social media.

Uh.....Yes you do, you are here. This forum is social media.

This is, however a fairly anonymous site. Unless someone dug pretty hard they wouldn't equate "Gunsucker 88" to Joe Smith the job applicant.

That's its own red flag
yep, love when these threads get resurrected and i go to post only to find out i had already posted that exact same comment.
this. the whole "i don't have one" is worse than having one filled with non work related things (imagine...).

they think you are REALLY weird if you don't have 3,000 pictures of yourself online.

Reminds me I need to make a fake "wholesome" account for employment purposes. My old boss had one like that, he was kinda a right wing extremist former SOF. His Facebook was like family in an apple orchard in matching outfits.

yeah i have my work website and whatnot which def has my info. any social media could easily be linked, so i just lay low. except here of course, but again anyone who goes after me is also going to lose out because what were you doing chatting it up with a racist nazi on a gun selling forum?!?!
