But what about your public image? What does it say about you? Are you portraying the life character that you intend?

  1. Usually, college students only hear about how their social media sites will come back to haunt them on the job hunt. It is true how the internet has given many more people a public identity but I like how he discusses how this doesn’t need to be a bad thing. It is something that needs to be managed by more people now since more people are under the public eye- but it can also be the ordinary person’s claim to fame, like all the YouTube stars out there.

  2. This is such good advice! People are always critiquing companies about how they brand themselves and how they maintain their image, but people should flip this criticism around on themselves and analyze if they were a corporation what image would you portray to the world. With all the different social media platforms out their people can brand themselves in almost anyway they want, but it requires upkeep and a keen eye. Also you have to maintain that brand throughout all the different types of platforms you use. I feel like this would be a great way to get experience for a job, but working on branding yourself! Great post.
