So you have successfully branded yourself by creating and maintaining a Twitter account, LinkedIn page, personal blog, spruced up your resume – but what is the use if prospective employers Google your name and see none of these? Even worse, what is they see completely irrelevant, and in many cases inappropriate, pages and pictures when searching your name?
What if I told you there was a way to promote your intended online content to the top of the list whenever your name is searched? Do I have your interest yet?
Last April, 40% of 2,000 hiring managers on Career Builder said they research job candidates by doing an online search for social networking pages. In this day-in-age why wouldn’t you give yourself every advantage offered to help you land your dream job/internship?
