Your digital footprint can affect you for better or for worse. It may impress people that may hire you in the future or they may judge you before they meet you because of what they see. If they dislike what they see online they may still hire you but, won’t treat you fairly. They may think that is how you act all the time. they may not hire you because the stuff online about you will affect the company or brand name badly.
There are somethings that can keep you from having a bad footprint. There are a few small simple things that you can do. Keep your software up to date, use privacy settings but, know that they won’t always work very well and you should look yourself up every once and a while to make sure someone hasn’t posted anything that can affect you.
There is some information that I have learned that may help other people. Everything stays online forever, It can effect your chances for jobs and your chances at future schooling at collages or university. People
can judge you by what you post online so they may not want to be your friend or colleague.
