Make sure the employers Googling you see positive, professional results.
When people search for your name online, what will they find? Be proactive in ensuring your future hiring manager finds the right information.
These six strategies will boost your online visibility and protect against unwanted search results:
Create awesome, authentic profiles. Some experts recommend writing your profiles in the third person, because it sounds more professional and credible. The other school of thought is to write your profiles in the first person to sound genuine and more personal. Whichever you choose, be sure you tell your story. Your story should explain, in easy-to-understand terms, what problems you are good at solving, who benefits and why this is important to you. You may also choose to include a personal factoid or memorable data point to set yourself apart.
