Dos and Don'ts for Creating Your Online Presence

Don't: Be a critic

Even if you cant stand your current or former boss and co-workers, resist the temptation to bad mouth them online. You may think your accounts are private, but again, nothing online is truly private.

Instead of venting online, meet a close friend for lunch, coffee, or happy hour to blow off steam. One of the surest ways to turn off potential employers is negative talk about previous jobs, and that includes online chatter.
