How many Profiles do you have?

 

You MUST have a LinkedIn Profile and I hope that you have optimized it for networking.

(if not, get this complimentary check list and see if you have.)  This is the premier social network for business networking, including job search or recruiting. 

But you have many more profiles. 

Google Plus

If you have a @gmail.com email address, you have a free G+ Profile.  Open your Google search page on your browser and look for the +YourName.  Click there and take a look at your free real estate on Google+.  What do you think about it?  Does it look like an empty field with crickets and no humans?  Let’s change that!

Do you speak German? 

Try Xing!

Industry Groups

Do you belong to any industry groups?  RAPSDIA? LES?  You have profiles there as well. 

Most of the places you have a login and a password you also have a profile

How do you want to be seen (and found by recruiters and hiring managers)?  Each of these social sites has a different niche, with different people looking at you, connecting with you and which you can connect with. 

Facebook

Facebook is another.  Be careful how you use it.  How are you seen on your Wall?  Do you use FB for socializing?  Politics? Religion?  Only you can decide how you want to be seen anywhere online.

Twitter

How are you seen on Twitter?  Do you have a professional Twitter Profile?  You can have more than one.  If you think that the one you are currently using is less than professional, start a new one!

What other real estate do you have online?  The more consistent you are over all of your urls/sites/profiles, the more likely you are to be found by the right people. 

This is one step in building your personal brand.
