As an IT recruiter you are constantly meeting new people and making new connections through email or social media networks. However, when you begin adding all these people to your networks, these people typically have access to your personal contacts as well. You want to build business relationships, but where do you draw a line between your work and home life?
Many IT recruiters have chosen to create two profiles: A work profile and a personal one in order to avoid mixing in with their personal lives with business. Another option that IT recruiters have chosen is to make their profiles private and only allow a certain group of people to see their whole profile. This can become annoying and tedious trying to keep both parts of your lives separate.
IT recruiters should keep work connections on certain social networks (such as LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook) separate from personal accounts. Not only for privacy reasons, but credibility, professional and even safety reasons as well.
