8 Ways You're Ruining Your Online Reputation

Common Online Reputation Management Mistakes & How to Fix Them

4. Blogging Gone Bad

Blogging is a double-edged sword. On one hand it can be a great platform if you're producing content relative to your field. But if you're constantly going on expletive-laden tirades & political rants, it might be difficult to interview for a job down the road.

If you’re a blogger, remove any blogs that might be considered controversial, offensive, or even silly. Instead, use your blog to show potential employers that you are an expert in your area of expertise. Blogging about topics relevant to your job will show potential employers you are educated, interested, committed, and will result in some serious industry cred. It also increase the likelihood that you connect with similar professionals who may be able to help you land the perfect job.
