Your Online Reputation
Yes – you do have one! You will be surprised how many employers will check you out online prior to deciding whether to interview!
We are not just talking about professional sites such as Linked In. Also, employers will often try look at your profile on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter or comments you’ve posted on a company’s blog or website.
It is essential that you keep track of your online reputation – not only in terms of what is written, but also what people are saying about you and what your name is being associated with – before it costs you that dream job!
The line between your personal and professional life is being eroded massively by the internet. When jobhunting, remember to check your privacy settings so that the only things visible to potential employers are things you WANT to be visible!
