  21. So what should job seekers do? • Recognise that building an online personal brand is now a critical aspect of career development • It boosts our reputation and gives us new skills in communication, creativity and reflective thinking. • The information we display on social networks should actively encourage rather than discourage potential employers • Don’t “opt out” - finding NOTHING about a person on a Google search creates a negative impression too 21
