How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities?
If you’re posting inappropriate things now, then in the future when you’re applying for jobs and your possible employer searches your name they will be disappointed and not want to hire you. If your family members search your name and something inappropriate you said or did shows up it could have consciences.
Three strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe.
- Keep your account on private and only let people you know follow you.
2. Don’t put any personal information in your bio’s (ex. School, sports team that you play for, location, etc.).
- Use the “grandma rule”. The grandma rule is when you wouldn’t post things that you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed to show to your grandma.
