Clean Up Your Name

"Vanessa Gomez...is waking up in the morning feelin like P.Diddy."

Google your name..your full name. What do you find?
This is one of the first things you should do when starting off your job hunt. Not only will it ensure a squeeky clean "googlability"but, it'll remind you to delete some old accounts you may have forgetted about.

For example, I had a podcast back in high school. I completely forgot about it. I also had a webcam chat account. Totally forgot. It took me about an hour and a half to remember all the passwords and delete the accounts.

Think about this. Do you really want a potential employer to see your status updates? Even it you publicly announce your vices, its still a bad thing to update between the hours of 9a-5p. Then your boss-to-be may think you're always online. Not needed.

Instead of "harvesting your crops" on Farmville or answering Tweets or "Tumbl-ing", amp up your LinkedIn! Google my name and my LinkedIn pops up on the very first page.

This is totally necessary if you're going for a job that's up with the internet times. If the company has different online platforms (website, twitter,myspace, etc.), this is a MUST.

I'm not suggesting you call up your internet provider and cut yourself off from the world. Just keep it clean, kiddos.

And if you absolutely cannot let go of the crazy status updates and photos from last weekend's parties,....use your nickname!

Procedure is an amazing one and have some of the preservatives which is awesome to see and the thing you told about to want a potential employer to see your status updates,so the updates are useful to see and if you made them with good of the effort then it has to be seen it have to be good too.
