Graduating? Time to Clean Up Your Digital Dirt

BEFORE: Don’t let them see your fear (or other negative traits!)

Chances are if an employer is considering interviewing you, they are going to Google you before they decide whether or not to make the call.

Before you send out your application materials, beat the employers to the punch: Google yourself and clean up your digital profile.

Get rid of drinking pictures (especially underaged ones), cleavage shots, trashy rants and anything else you find that you don’t want your prospective employers to see.

To get started, follow this link to read the Atlantic article about what NOT to put on your Facebook page if you want a job. 

Then once you’re digitally cleansed, read this Reuters article about using social media to land a job.

AFTER: Try to radiate a confident, competent image online!
