Can Your Instagram Hurt Your Career?

“….recently one of my co-workers made a passing comment about some pictures I
had up on my FB profile. I could be going crazy, but since then I feel as if some of my co-workers are treating me differently. This is my personal profile! It has nothing to do with work.

I do not think that they have any right to tell me what I should or should not post on my profile. I’m upset that they had the nerve to. What should I do?

How would you answer this question? Recently I was given the opportunity to give advice on this situation.

Every Thursday for some months now, the Association of Female Executives of Trinidad and Tobago (AFETT) has had a column in the business section of the Trinidad Newsday. In the column AFETT members have been taking turns giving career advice on topics of interests to professionals.

I am honoured to be the most recent contributor to the column. Have a look at the business section in the Newsday last Thursday December 7th, and you can see my response.

What do you think of this topic? What advice would you give? Do you think of your job before you post on social media?
