When Google Says You’re a Nobody

What happens when you Google your name?

What comes up?

You’re Facebook page, your LinkedIn profile, what?

Do you like what you find? Is it consistent with who you are and how you do your job? Is what you find when you google your name, consistent with who you are?

If someone had to make a split decision on hiring you or not, based on your social presence would you get hired?

All I can say is, the answer better be yes! If it’s not, that’s a problem.


People expect to find who and what they are looking for when they Google something and if they don’t they become suspect.  We’ve become and information society and that’s quickly changing the success game.

People want to know who you are, what makes you good, how you do what you do and more before they meet you. They aren’t OK learning it in an interview.

Take the test and search your name, what does a Google search say about you and is it good enough?

Personal brand matters.

I dedicated 3 chapters to this in my book Not Taught, What it Takes to be Successful in the 21st Century No One is Teaching You.
