Be Aware of What’s Online

You’re probably already aware of this, but your life online is visible to everyone. You really need to keep in mind that when potential employers are considering you for a job they will more than likely check you out online.  A pretty full portrait of your life and personality is just a few clicks away for anybody to see, so you need to stay fully aware of what they’ll find when they look.

Are there are lot of photos of you drunk? Do you often go on longwinded facebook rants that oppose your future business place’s values? Any undesirable aspects of your personality on display online are things that can stand in the way of your future.

If there are things you don’t want everyone to know (including your employer, or your Dad or your Grandmother or your Dog – who literally believes you can do no wrong), then don’t post them. Just don’t do it. What a lot of people realize too late is how truly public their various profiles are, and what an undesirable first impression they’re inadvertently creating. Online is forever, guys.
