If the new graduate is someone who has not spent enough time thinking about their online reputation, that may very well be what is standing in their way.
“I have always looked at the online reputation of the applicants that I am considering for a position,” Says JW Maxx Solutions CEO and reputation expert Walter Halicki, “And believe me, I am not the only one. The way you look online is going to weigh on your professional future, there is no escaping it.”
College grads who are about to start their professional lives and want to make sure that they look good to potential employers online should keep the following tips in mind.
1. Look for negative content: There are a number of things that can damage the way that a potential employee will be seen to hiring managers. Unflattering pictures, inappropriate content, and even posts by family and friends can affect how hiring managers see the person they are searching. Additionally, when there is content showing up from someone who has a similar name it can cause confusion for the employer. Look for all of these when assessing how a personal reputation looks.
2. Look at social profiles: When someone looks up a name, one of the first things that pops up is social profiles. These profiles can include old profiles that haven’t been touched in years, but could still reflect on the person who owns them. Look at these profiles, clean them up, and refresh them with new, correct information.
3. Take Action: Those who see a lot of negative show up when they look for themselves online should take a proactive approach to making themselves look better. There are many tools and strategies that they can use to get themselves off to a good start and make themselves look more appealing to potential employers.
