Yahoo via Women’s Day has published a list of 10 things HR departments care about. Some of the items on this list are very important, especially those related to job interviews. Another point to consider is managing your online reputation. If you have any photos or comments on Facebook or another social networking website that might turn off an employer, take them down or change your settings so only your friends can see them. Equally important, many companies are now tracking how you use the Internet at work. Don’t confuse work time and personal time.
Some of this advice might sound like common sense. However, people are not getting jobs and losing jobs every day because they lack an essential skill – common sense.
