Clean Up Your Digital Dirt

Clean Up Your Digital Dirt Image

While the use of social channels to screen potential hires can expose companies to legal pitfalls, and there are many issues around discrimination and privacy that must be considered, companies can and do use social media information to augment the hiring process. Some use it well, others may not, but the sheer scale of social media activity means candidates must be aware that in various ways it has become part of the hiring process. Learn four basic steps to ensuring your online presence is reflective of the real brand ‘you’, and that it promotes your employability rather than hinders it.

This is probably the best description of "digital dirt" I've ever seen. Thank you for posting it here--especially the bit about being "too perfect" or "too careful." Being honest and forthright in social media about who I am and what my goals are, short- and long-term (both personal and professional) has led me to make some very positive life- and career-direction-changing contacts in the creative industry. If you're a generally upbeat person, play well with others, and you know what you want to do in life, social media can be your best friend. :)
