  1. I had never seriously thought that a future employer would actually Google my name to see if am visible on the Internet. This comment in the article helped me understand better why what I have on my Twitter or Facebook could turn out to be a good thing.

  2. Dr. Martin-
    It is crazy to think that our “first impressions” are now being based off of what our possible,future employers are reading about us on the internet. This article was both insightful and helpful.

    This article was extremely helpful! It was sobering to learn just how competitive the job market is going to be. I was also enlightened by how important social media is to our future careers. All of the tools we use in our PR class are vital for marketing our own name and networking in our field. It has encouraged me to take Twitter more seriously and utilize the skills i’ve learned from this blog.

  5. “Cultivate your personal brand. Do your research. Commit to quality. Align yourself to the agency’s cause for the long-term. Remember that it’s not all about you.”

    The above quote summed up this post very clearly. I thought everything was so helpful that I read. I think it is crucial to do research and know all about the company before interviewing. The next time I go for an interview I plan on coming up with questions, based upon my research, to ask when I meet with them.

    This was a short blog that gave some key advice that I am going to follow.

  6. Dr. Martin,
    Thank for posting this article. I really enjoyed reading it, and thought there was plenty of information that was very relevant to where we all are in our lives. I feel like the point about it being about the employer is an often forgotten point. We are the ones who need the job, and they can find a million of us. So therefore, I believe doing research and showing them you have a genuine interest is definitely key.

    I have already put this post in my bookmarks, and will refer back to it when I am search for my internship!!
