In the age of Google, we all naturally turn to the internet when we face a challenge. For example, “How do you close a drain?”, “What’s the best way to get rid of a hangover?”, or maybe even, “How do I get my dream job?”

If you’re currently looking for a new career, you’ve probably spent some time scouring websites and blogs looking for solid advice. In general, the message is generally the same: use your network, dress appropriately, create an impressive online portfolio, yadda yadda.

We have listened to the same advice for years. One of the top tips that experts like to throw out is cleaning your social media accounts before applying. A 2017 YouGov survey found that more than a third of UK employers rejected candidates based on their Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn profile.

Glass and cow’s blood made of algae?

Experts and artists discuss the future of sustainable material design

We’ve all heard the horror stories. An HR executive found photos from your grandniece’s bachelorette weekend and withdrew the company’s job offer. Or a potential boss came across your neighbors’ tagged photos on Instagram and decided you “didn’t quite fit their brand.”

In the past, we were told to clean up our social media accounts or risk missing out on opportunities. But is this really still necessary?

Unfortunately it could.

A few weeks ago, Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin made headlines around the world. A video of the 36-year-old partying with friends went viral on social media. While the video itself was harmless, it did highlight how strict the standards are for young professionals — especially women — on social media.

Here was an extremely successful, respected woman who was punished for simply having a good time with her friends on her night off. Let’s face it, we’ve all been there. And the fact is, employees have the right to enjoy their downtime in any way they want. But old habits persist and unfortunately many companies, brands and people will still judge you on what you post online.

Gradual shift

Things are slowly moving in a new direction. Thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, the rise of remote working and the arrival of Gen Z in the workplace, we are seeing a gradual shift towards more relaxed, informal work environments. Employees are encouraged to put themselves to work as employers advocate diversity of thought. However, Sanna Marin’s story has made it clear how much further we have to go.

In 2022, it doesn’t make sense that a workplace would violate your privacy and spend time researching your social media accounts. If you have ample experience, good references and a positive attitude, that really should be all you need when it comes to applying and performing in a job.

Who cares whether you enjoy going to nude beaches during your vacation or spending Sunday mornings at a rave in a department store? You do you. And as for old-fashioned companies scouring your social media accounts, who needs them?

So, if you’re looking for a position at a forward-thinking company, check out these great gigs below:
