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.
