These days everyone is on social media including companies that you want to work for, like Spectrum Brands. That’s both good and bad – it’s another way for you to “break in” and ask questions, but it’s also another venue in which you have to make a good impression. Here are our tips for perfect etiquette online.
We’re not kidding. People have written on our Facebook wall saying simply, “I need a job.” It’s not our job to find you a job. It’s our responsibility to see if you’re a good fit for a position in which you’ve already applied for. Do your research and find a position on our careers site, then you can reach out to us.
But Do Keep in Touch.
We love to hear if you’ve applied for a job or especially if you’ve landed a job at Spectrum Brands! If you have any questions about the application or interview process, feel free to post it to our Facebook wall or send us a tweet @Spectrum_Brands.
Do a Social Sweep…
If you plan on interacting with us on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, make sure that your profiles are professional and appropriate. When starting a job search, it’s best to clean up your profile pictures, be more aware of your status updates, and perhaps double-check your security settings.
Then Make a Good Impression.
Social networks are more casual than a formal interview, but you still keep things professional. Use correct grammar, ask intelligent questions, and avoid inappropriate language.
