Q&A: Resumes and Social Media

Sunday, June 1st, 2014

Question:

How closely should my information posted on social sites and job boards match the information on my resume?

~Chris from Millwaukie

Answer:

It is very important to invest the time to keep your internet reputation current and polished. Having out of date and out of sync with your social networking sites is often a red flag for hiring managers and HR professionals. It is well worth the time to keep this information current.</br>

. . . my wife and daughter are convinced that not only do I need to update my wardrobe, but I need a makeover and should dye my hair.  REALLY??

Coloring your hair is actually not bad advice . . . , but we suggest the services of a professional.  A good hair stylist can give you highlights, can keep an appropriate amount of gray and wash the rest away. Look forward to touch ups every 4 or 5 weeks.
