Where Can I Find You?

March 24, 2010

If  you applied for a job with me and I Goggled you, what would I find?

Do you have a blog linked to your name that shows me all your brilliant thoughts?  Or perhaps you blog about your personal relationship drama?

Are you on Twitter?  Do you share interesting thoughts, or do you talk about how much you drank last weekend?

If I look you up on Facebook, will I be able to see all your photos and posts?  If so, what will they tell me about you?

What is your online presence?   Do you know what’s visible?  Are you proud of what is visible?

If not, go look.

The way you present yourself to the world could play a big role in the perception people have of you, whether fair or not.  Not just for hiring managers, but even your network, your past, present and future co-workers and any other professional contacts you have.

Again, take a look. Set up a Google Alert even.  But pay attention to how you allow yourself to be presented online and edit where needed.
