A lot goes into looking for a job: crafting a perfect resume, scouring job boards, reaching out to old colleagues and professors, attending community networking events, just to name a few.
But you also need to Google yourself—because potential employers sure are.
A study conducted by Career Builder found that:
- 57% of employers are less likely to interview a candidate they can’t find online
- 54% have not hired a candidate based on their social media profiles
- 70% use social media to screen candidates
Cultivating a professional online presence is crucial to successfully snagging the perfect job opportunity. College toga party pictures, drunk tweets, political rants, badmouthing former employers, and insensitive jokes that we thought nothing of at the time can now put a job offer in jeopardy.
Here are some strategies to clean up your digital presence as you prepare to seek out your next job opportunity:

In this Collab365 live show, host Nick Brattoli was joined by SharePoint experts Sam Marshall, Paul Gallagher, and Matthew Bailey to discuss building your own intranet solution versus buying an “intranet-in-a-box” solution.
Sam defined “intranet-in-a-box” as a set of code libraries that can be installed quickly and are immediately ready-to-go. These solutions have standardized requirements and the vendor takes care of implementation and maintenance.
Here are some highlights from the webcast:

Last week, I tuned in to Collab365’s Live Show, where the hosts and two special guests discussed Office 365 groups.
I’ve outlined some of the key points I took away from the show below:
- What is Office 365 Groups?
Office 365’s blog defines Groups as a “cross-application membership service” that allows people “to move naturally from one collaboration tool to another.” Essentially, it integrates the best parts of all of Microsoft’s other collaboration tools, such as Exchange, Skype for Business, FileMaker, and Microsoft Teams, into one place. Groups gives you and your team members access to a SharePoint site, document library, planner, notebook, and distribution group.

Last Wednesday, I was fortunate enough to attend the SOLD-OUT Microsoft CXO Summit…from my computer! Thankfully, Microsoft live-streamed the first three hours of the conference, and man, did they pack a lot of great insight into those three hours!

- Companies are reaching out to the “crowd” as innovation partners
- 86% of CEOs consider digital transformation their top priority
- Automation is the difference in computing today and computing 30 years ago
