How to Clean Up Your Online Reputation for the Job Hunt

Search Yourself

Since employers will hire or reject you based on what they find about you on the Internet, make sure you check and correct your online presence.  Google yourself and review everything the search engine returns about you.  Do this with an alternative search engine like Bing, Yahoo, Ask, etc.  Follow the links to wherever the engine takes you.  Yes, that may mean visiting your own Twitter, Instagram, etc.  Remove anything you or others have posted that contradicts the online impression you wish to make.  If you can’t find instructions on removing things on the site itself, ask the search engine you are using.  I bet you are not the first person wanting to clean up their online world and I am sure you will find posted instructions on how to clean most any site.
