So you’ve landed the job interview — hooray! As you prepare for the interview and think about what to wear, there’s one other area I’ll encourage you to think about preparing — your social media profiles. And by preparing, I mean, clean up!

Meet SCRUBBER. I came across this app the other week and personally think it is a must-have for anyone looking for a job.

The best part is, it’s super easy to use. Simply link the app to all your social media accounts. Scrubber then flags any questionable or inappropriate comments by you or anyone else in your comment section for free. Just because you take care about what you post doesn’t mean your friends do. That perfectly normal picture and caption you posted of your vacation is fine except for the inappropriate comment made by one of your friends.

Scubber will flag that comment and then you can delete it. If you have a lot of flagged posts you can pay Scrubber a onetime fee of $19/month and they will delete all the flagged comments. Humans do not read your posts. It is software that goes through your feeds 99.9 percent of the time.

This is great for anyone at any age if you are on social media. I recommended it to a college student interviewing for an internship last week, but plan to run it on my own profiles, too.
