How Google can destroy your career

Have you ever ‘googled’ yourself and seen what your online profile is like? You should because chances are that your employer has and your potential future employer will.

It is easy to forget in today’s information age that anything posted online remains permanently available to be accessed via the internet and your employment future may be crushed in one foul swoop (or click). What may have been fun and games at School or University suddenly doesn’t look to appealing to a potential employer.

The good news is that it is easy to find that information so that you can minimise any damaging material (if it is self-published), request that it be removed (if it is not self-published) and generally know what information about you is floating around on the world wide web.
