Your Online Presence

Whether you like it or not, many employers use the Internet to look up potential new employees.  This means you need to clean up your online presence - including your Facebook account or anything that might appear unprofessional.  You can use sites such as Brand Yourself (started by SU alums!) to clean up and enhance how you appear online.  Professional networking sites, such as LinkedIn, are also crucial to connect with professional contacts you want to keep up with.
