Having an online presence has never been more important
If you are a job seeker (active or passive) you have probably heard that it is important to build your online reputation. Have you begun? The facts are in. 78% of hiring managers are searching for information about candidates online. Furthermore, 85 percent of the recruiting professionals polled said that they were positively influenced when they found favorable information online.
Thanks to a study commissioned by Microsoft and NETSHARE.com, I will share with you the findings.

Having a presence and a positive/professional one is the magic combination. How are you managing your on-line reputation? Please share.
