7. Edit all of your social media profiles
The first thing firms do in today's market is their "homework" - they check out various social media sites (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc.) to see what they can find out about you before even calling you for an interview. So, before you get your resume out there, review your personal pages and edit or delete anything that could negatively affect your chances of finding a job.
Use your best discretion - don't let your ego get in the way. Take, for example, a fun picture of you and many of your friends at the beach. To you it's a fun picture of a great day. But a potential employer may see beer bottles everywhere, bathing suits that reveal too much, tattoos, etc. Sometimes, less is more.
