Your online presence is made up of your personally-identifying content and information on the internet. This may include profiles and posts on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, personal websites, Tumblr, blogs, and more.
Your online presence can positively or negatively impact your work search process. By intentionally managing your online presence, you can:
- showcase your achievements, skills and experiences to potential employers,
- develop your reputation and increase your access to new opportunities,
- gain connections with professionals in your field(s) of interest, and
- mitigate any potentially negative information outside your control (e.g. images, comments)
