What does your online digital presence say about you? When your peers are looking you up, do they find your current curriculum vitae and most recent scholarly activities? Or do they find your Facebook history, or Instagram pics of food, or perhaps student comments on Rate My Professors? Making sure you properly curate your digital identity can be key to your professional career.
Steps to Building Your Identity
Search yourself using Google, Bing, and Yahoo. What do you find? What are other people seeing?
Note: Google yourself from a public computer WITHOUT LOGGING IN to your email or browser. If you do not do this, Google will show you what your past searches tell it you want to see rather than what others see.
Monitor your public identity and keep it active on any current key sites
Post and share your accomplishments on key networking sites
Create an ORCID iD to connect all of your professional output
Join your peers on respected professional sharing networks and forums
