Cyber Reputation

  1. Always think before you share (count to ten before you hit “send” or “post”!).
  2. Tell yourself: “There is no delete button on the Internet.”
  3. Remember, everything you put on the Internet is “persistent, searchable, replicable and can be viewed by vast invisible audiences” [1].
  4. Think about replacing silly or immature email addresses with something more mature.
  5. Post positive items and accomplishments online for college recruiters and potential employers to see.
  6. Be respectful of the photos and information you post about friends – and ask them to give you the same courtesy.
