It's becoming easier and easier to undo all the good work you've done to find a good job after law school through a lack of good judgment in using the Internet, especially social media.
George Lenard has a great post on George's Employment Blawg called "Ten Internet Mistakes That Can Hurt Your Job Search." It would be good for all of us to commit these potential mistakes to memory.
Highlights include wise advice about pictures, Facebook, Twitter, comments on other sites, and creating your own Google Profile.
On the other hand, you can also point to at least ten great ways (many of them found in George's post) effective use of the Internet can help your job search, so it's important to keep a balanced perspective. Just because you can make mistakes on the Internet doesn't mean you want to stay away from the Internet.
The bottom line: moderation and good judgment will always serve you well.
