Hiring managers use them more frequently to consult your profile and supplement or check against the CV/resume you send along. Eliminate any photos and statements that could reflect poorly on you. From an employer’s point of view, someone who emphasizes partying on a social networking site is not focused on jobs and those who post complaints about work or colleagues are less desirable candidates. Online CVs/resumes should not include sensitive information as they could show lack of respect for confidentiality and discretion.

International Job Search

International job seekers should be prepared to take the foreign country as it is with all of its difficulties, contradictions and challenges.
