Prepare to be Googled

Whether you’re in job search mode or navigating your career, you’ll be Googled. Got a sales meeting? You’ve been Googled. Speaking gig? The audience will Google you. With that in mind, it’s mission critical your online brand demonstrates how you wish to be perceived. Google yourself now (first and last name in quotes) to see what pops up.

Got dirt? Clean it up by removing it (Facebook tags and pics beware!) or burying it (blog content, LinkedIn updates, Twitter posts).

Minimal presence? Start with LinkedIn (typically found on page 1 when you’re Googled). Complete your profile, upload your headshot, and create a dynamic bio. Ambitious? Start a blog and post regularly.

Get found the right way online. Good luck!
