Job Hunters: Clean Up Your Online Profiles!

[kml_flashembed movie="" width="450" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]

I had an opportunity to speak to Fox 8 News in Cleveland awhile back about how job hunters can clean up their online profiles via social networking sites like MySpace, Facebook or Twitter. Here’s the video …

My advice:

  • Privatize Your Profile – Set your Facebook profile to private and enable “Protect my updates” in Twitter. This requires potential recruiters to get your approval before they can access your updates.
  • Check Your Content – Take a look at the photos, text and comments on your page through the eyes of a potential employer. Remove any negative references to past employers and/or frustrations with work. Don’t forget that poor grammar and high amounts of slang can also work against you.
  • Google Yourself – Once you’ve cleaned up your online presence, run searches on your name on Google, Yahoo and Bing in order to check for any remaining negative content that may still be seen by potential employers.
