Keeping a Clean Online Image

Law students should recognize that potential employers will likely check on their online images when making hiring decisions.  In a training session that I lead with our career services office, I recommend that students take a look at their online image and make sure they are not putting information out there that will come back to bite them come job search time.

A recent study by Reppler revealed that 47% of Facebook users have profanity on their FB walls.  Another recent study found overwhelming references to drinking.  This is not the image you want to present to a potential employer.
