Students Realize Businessmen Use Google Too

Posted by admin | Uncategorized | Friday 26 February 2010 10:30 pm

Students are showing an increasing amount of concern about what their online reputations reflect about them. After school they have to go into the real world and interview for jobs, which is no easy thing in a competitive time like this. Students need to be ever-mindful of how professional their facebook is going to look when they are looking for jobs.

Some students worried about how their online presence will be perceived by a potential employer are taking the extraordinary security step of changing their names on the social network Facebook.

In this down economy, with heavy competition for jobs, Maryland students and new graduates are joining an emerging national trend of modifying account names to elude snooping recruiters.

It is good that students are starting to realize this, because businessmen have long used Google to identify less-than-professional applicants. If students have done irreparable damage to their reputations, they might want to consider a search reputation management campaign.
