Professional Online Identity

Social media can be a powerful tool, allowing you to create connections with employers and professionals, build your personal brand, and maintain social relationships. But if not managed wisely, your online identity could be harmful. Content and photos found online could impact how potential employers perceive you, and if they are inappropriate or offensive, may cost you an opportunity. To avoid this, follow these tips for maintaining a professional online presence:

  • Search your name through Google and other search engines to see what information is available; are you comfortable with what is viewable? Take steps to remove content you would not want an employer to see and adjust your privacy settings as needed.
  • If there is information online that you would rather employers not see, focus on building your brand on professional networking sites such as LinkedIn so that less flattering information will appear lower on a search.
  • To be safe, assume content and images you post on social and professional networking sites may be seen by potential employers.
