How to Put Social Media on a Resume? (+ What to Avoid)
Listing social media on a resume can be beneficial, but only if the profile provides additional information about your career. Always check your online presence when applying for jobs, and skip any social media profiles that don’t offer relevant information for the employer.
How to put social media on a resume:
- Add social media links to your contact information on a resume—this is the easiest way to include 1–2 social media profiles, including your LinkedIn account.
- Make a separate Social Media resume section. That’s the best option if you want to include 3+ links to your social media accounts. Place the social media section after the contact information—it is still best to have both in the resume header.
- Ensure that the links are easy to understand by labeling each profile clearly.
- Check if all hyperlinks work.
Remember to check if the names of your social media accounts sound professional. It’s best to include your first and last name or your brand name. Avoid unprofessional nicknames or taglines.
