Find Your Dream Job: Insider Tips for Finding Work, Advancing your Career, and Loving Your Job

Nov 14, 2016

The U.S. presidential election wrapped up last week, but politics remains a charged and potentially divisive issue. This brings up an interesting question for job seekers: how much of your own political beliefs should you share online and with prospective employers? How much politics is too much politics?

This is part of a larger conversation about balancing your values against how those values impact your job search. It's important to be yourself so that you can find the right organizational culture fit. At the same time, you need to know that nearly any political posture may limit your job search options.

Tips from the Mac's List Team:

  • Remove any inflammatory political statements from social media.
  • Know your Facebook privacy settings.  (Need some help with this? Check out our free course, How to Wow and Woo Employers Online.)
  • Practice restraint. "Don't be the crazy uncle at Thanksgiving Dinner."
  • Don't write anything that you wouldn't want to be seen as a headline on a major newspaper.
