Yes, I Google myself, and according to Katherine Spencer Lee of Robert Half Technology I should be digging even deeper. There is one thing I recommend beyond Ms. Lee’s – look up your online handle or pseudonym on a search engine. Chances are there will be a lot of content you never thought about. Since my handle is connected to business transactions on eBay and Etsy.com I like to make sure I know who else shares my name. So far only social networking sites have someone using the same handle I do. I’m not worried because I don’t use them.
So take another look at yourself in the monitor to make sure people get the right image. It’s easy to fix mistakes, but it’s hard to pick up the pieces once someone gets the wrong impression.
