What Employers look for and don't want to find on your social media page

Employers red flags for employees or candidates are normally drinking (alcohol), badmouthing previous employers (or current employers), drug use, and lying about qualifications. These are just some of the worst red flags that employers judge upon. They also look at how presentable your profile picture is, along with your bio. With twitter, every tweet is actually logged, so it can’t ever be completely erased.
