  • Welcome, everyone, and thank you for coming. I hope you’re learning some useful tips today, and having a good time overall!I was asked to present today on social networking, and your social network, essentially preparing yourself to look good online, and connecting to the right people.As I go along, if you have any questions at all, please let me know.
  • Anyone know who this is?
  • This is Carly McKinney.
  • She was a high school teacher in Colorado.Until it was revealed that she had quite the Twitter presence. One that involved scantily clad photos of herself, and posts about smoking pot.
  • Then I did just some minimal poking about on Twitter and happened upon this non-URI library school student’s tweet.
  • And this one.
  • Then I found this post on Hack Library School. Anyone here read Hack Lib School?
  • I read the post and found this sentence: “I wondered if I should change my twitter handle from @lez_brarian to something safer and scrub my tweets of anything not strictly library related.”
  • My point of view? That’s not necessary.
  • Most library professionals would not be fazed by something like that. Post kitten pictures, shopping lists, etc. You are a person.
  • Your resume, cover letter, and online presence are all the search committee is likely to know about you.And if there’s a professional HR department or hiring manager, it’s even more likely you’ll be Googled, and perhaps have a background check as well.
