Hi, I am asking this question here because I think that it is related to career prospects. One of my son’s peers who is now studying in University and is 19 made some comments on “Instagram” being a minor (16/17), this included publishing some “neonazi” pictures such as the celt cross or the 14 words... According to my son he has now changed his views but is worried about how this immaturity could have an effect on his career (for example, if screenshots reach an employer etc). They asked for my advice but I have little experience with corporate policies/attitudes towards this. Would this be an issue at all? Which solution could there be? Thank you.

Some employers run internet/social media checks on potential employees, I certainly can't imagine they would take kindly to this knowledge if they came accross it.

Who’s going to believe you when you say you’re no longer a Nazi? Sorry but those are a set of beliefs, not an opinion.

Perhaps an employer will be gracious and think that it was just a brash post made by a silly teen, but nearly no serious employer will want to take the chance.

Tell your son’s acquaintance to delete any trace of those silly comments and just hope for the best...
