If you don’t show up in Google, do you exist? If you do show up, what does Google have to say about you?
Known as “Digital Dirt,” how you appear … or even whether you appear .. in Google could be a contributing factor to you winning an interview or even securing a face-to-face meeting with a networking colleague. Why?
A survey by Recruiter’s World revealed that 63% of recruiters interviewed said they Google a candidate’s name prior to talking with them. A Harris Interactive Poll showed that 23% of individuals surveyed said they Google a colleague prior to meeting with them the first time.
Do you have “digital dirt,” “digital integrity,” or “digital extinction”?
