"POP" YOUR DIGITAL FOOTPRINT IN JOB SEARCHES
DEAR CSUN BUSINESS SCHOOL COBAE CAREER EVENT ATTENDEES:
Thank you for attending my presentation “Going Viral: Developing your Professional Online Profile (POP)" at your California State University Northridge event last Friday, November 15, 2013.
As promised, here are some career and reputation/profile links you may find useful when building your own Professional Online Profile (POP). I also wanted to remind you that now is a good time to clean up your Digital Footprint before you graduate. Below are just a few tips for managing or reducing some of the crumbs on your digital path before you enter the full-time job market.
Good luck and thanks again for attending!
