Start by Googling yourself

If you Google yourself, what do you find? Do the search results reflect what you would like potential funding bodies, employers and collaborators to see?

Consider:

  • Do personal or professional profiles appear first in search results?
  • What platforms are your profiles on? (privacy)
  • What do you want colleagues, potential employers, students, etc. to find?
  • Is your online identity saying what you want and need it to say about you?
  • Do you want to separate or integrate your personal and professional identities?
  • How can you manage what information about you is available?
