Another 34 percent said they passed on a candidate because of content they found on the social media sites. These stats say you need to create an image, and be in control of it. Otherwise, the image people find of you online may not be the one you want.

 

Decide What Image You Want to Portray

 

The three questions to understanding the image you want, according to the Daily Muse in Forbes, include:

  • How do you affect the people around you?
  • Who benefits from what you do?
  • What actions do you take to generate that benefit? (more…)

Can You Afford to Ignore Your Online Reputation?

By Robert Teal, CCP, CBP

In today’s environment of ubiquitous social media, job seekers have unprecedented access to information about an organization’s workforce stability, turnover, and culture. As much as an out-of-work employee may need and want a job, many talented workers shy away from an employer with a poor workforce reputation.
