Reputation Rhino, a reputation management company in New York is offering advice to hundreds of job seekers looking for ways to improve their reputation online and find the job of their dreams.
Although the recession is technically over, America continues to struggle with high unemployment and underemployment. Millions of Americans are actively seeking new jobs or will be very soon. Company background checks are frequently including a comprehensive search of social media profiles and Internet search results.
A 2010 study by Microsoft confirmed the influence of digital media for those looking for a job. The study found that 85 percent of U.S. recruiters and HR professionals say that a positive online reputation influences their hiring decisions. For candidates who have damaging personal information online the news is especially alarming -- 70% of U.S. hiring managers rejected candidates based on what they found online.
“We’ve all heard the old adage: ‘You never get a second chance to make a first impression,’ says founder and CEO Todd William, “today, in the age of Google and Facebook, your first impression is online.”
Reputation management companies like Reputation Rhino work with individual and business clients to promote positive content to the first page of Google and suppress negative online content using the latest search engine optimization strategies. Some websites, like government sites or news sites are notoriously difficult to outrank, but experience, strong content writing and a well thought out strategy can yield surprising results.
“In this economy, there are dozens, sometimes hundreds of resumes for every open position,” says William, “you need every edge you can get. Reputation management is the best way to control what people see when they look for you online and it’s your chance to make a powerful first impression.”
