Hiring managers tell National Public Radio that they’re steering clear of candidates who make these digital job-seeking faux pas:

1. Not having an updated profile, with recommendations, on social media sites like LinkedIn.

2. Using a husband-and-wife e-mail address.

3. Not researching extensively the company and the position you’re applying for.

4. Not filing the résumé digitally.

5. E-mailing executives with whom you’ve never made a prior connection, either online or in person.

6. “Friending” an executive on Facebook whom you’re hoping will hire you.
