    Networking
    Connecting to family
    Staying in touch with friends
    Making new friends
    Choose your identity—don’t let it choose you
    Clean it up
  • Clean up digital dirt BEFORE you begin your job search.
    Consider creating a professional identity on sites like Facebook or LinkedIn or Twitter.
    Networking
    Establish relationships with leaders, recruiters and potential referrals
    Highlight accomplishments inside and outside of work
    Keep complaints offline. Keep the content focused on the positive, whether that relates to professional or personal information.
    Clean up your friends. Be selective about who you accept as friends.
    Monitor comments made by others.
    Use the "block comments" feature.
    Or setting your profile to "private" so only a few can view it.
    Don’t talk about your job search if you’re still employed.
