Question:

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

~Chris from Millwaukie

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 Having out of date and out of sync with your social networking sites is often a red flag for hiring managers and HR professionals.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.
