What is Your Online Presence?

According to the Forbes article "5 Reasons Why Your Online Presence Will Replace Your Resume in 10 years," more employers are using "the web as a place to search for talent and conduct employment background searches."  And recent data from Jobvite indicates that 23% of job seekers have been asked for social media info in a job interview.  So managing your online presence, or the way people see you online, is becoming increasingly important.  As Forbes notes, managing the way you present yourself online will help you to "gain control over...what employers find out about you when they conduct their search."

Use the following resources to take control of the way you're perceived online and manage your online presence.
