Those of us who did not grow up with the internet and did not have access to social media until we were already well into building our careers, should not be so quick to dismiss that nothing can come back to haunt us.
Whether good, bad, or ugly, the pages that pop up when your name is entered into that search bar can influence what others think about you. If anyone wants to know anything about you, they’re heading to Google. It doesn’t seem to matter that it’s taken out of context or only half the story is posted – there are those who think it must be true – ‘it’s on the internet’. At the very least, be aware of what images of you are out there.
