Whether you are looking for a job or not, your future employer may already have an idea of who you are by simply looking you up on Google. This is why you must do your best to maintain a positive name about yourself on the internet. Some of the information online can be controlled and others cannot. Your resume for example is something that you can control as you decide what you want to be put in it, but social media profiles, purchase transactions, and website usage are examples of things that normally viewed without a problem. The most important thing to remember is that you want to build a respectable name on the internet. Posting pictures, comments that you believe are appropriate may be not be to employers. Pictures of you drinking for example is not something you would want your future employer to see as this builds a negative image about you. If your online persona is damaged you are going to have a hard time finding a job even if your offline persona is superb. Having the mind state thinking that nothing in the internet is private matter is a great way to go about this. Make a website entailing your credibility, accomplishments, etc. in order to help build your online persona. Posting articles, and having others recommend your articles is another great example on how to maintain a positive. It cannot be emphasized enough that an your online reputation is important, make the effort to maintain it positive.
