Your professional profile

Your professional profile may also be enhanced if you appear on any of your academic institution's web pages, for instance those for a research centre. You may also be active in a professional association, so you may also be mentioned there. The list below suggests some services and the different uses for them.

Personal:

  • twitter
  • facebook

Professional:

  • twitter
  • Linked in
  • Academia.edu

Media:

  • YouTube
  • flikr
  • slideshare

Activity: Google yourself! What have you found? Would you want a future employer (or your parents!) to see it? Try Googling one of your lecturers and compare the results.

That is the end of our section on your digital footprint, be careful out there!
