Welcome to the wonderful world of you.
Because that’s largely what the internet is: you, in all your many facets. From the socialite on Facebook to the serious networker on Linkedin, you might be the controversial commentator on Twitter, but the expert on a company’s web page.
However different these platforms may be and whatever side of your personality they show, they all add up to one thing: you. So, are you happy with the story they tell? Would an employer be equally impressed?
Because try as you might, the personal can’t always be separated from the professional – and most employers will check out your entire online blueprint before they even consider hiring you. Don’t believe us? It’s estimated that over a quarter of HR professionals have rejected an applicant on the basis of what appears on the web.
Go on, Google yourself, we dare you.
Of course, you might decide that this is all too much like hard work and remove yourself from the online world entirely, but if you’re firmly rooted in social networks and you need any help navigating this complex new world, give us a shout and we’ll guide you through.
