A leading recruitment firm has suggested that job seekers need to be careful about what they put on their social media profile, wireless communication device users may wish to know.
According to a survey by Jobvite, 89 per cent of US companies will use social networks to recruit staff.
Charlie Ryan, director at Recruitment Queen and CMR Recruitment, explained that there are plenty of jobs out there for candidates.
"It is easy to get jobs, it is hard to find good candidates. There are lots of jobs out there," she said.
"They need to be using the social media sites in a professional way and discussing their careers online and [discussing] what they are looking for and what they are looking to achieve, rather than what they did on Saturday night."
Earlier this month, meanwhile, Sanford Wallace, the US man charged with sending more than 27 million spam messages to Facebook users, turned himself in.
The so-called Spam King surrendered to FBI agents in California.
