Updating my social media accounts; advice required.

Hi folks

I already have a Facebook, Linked In, and Twitter account. However, I haven’t been on them or used them for quite a while and now I am thinking of updating them in order to increase my chances of gaining employment and increasing my social circle.

Can you please give me some indication as to what type of information I should put on each account and the type of image I should upload – i.e. professional or casual?

Thanks in advance for your response.

I would not think Facebook or Twitter are much use for that, LinkedIn is the one you need to update.

Image - professional/smart casual. Also re-write your blur to go with the type of job you are after. Remember you will only get looked up as a result of putting in applications, not by firms searching at random, however remember that firms may do a Facebook search as part of a background scan if someone asks for employment.
