Great at your job? Prove it!
Be honest, if you were looking for somewhere to go on holiday, or if you were purchasing a book on Amazon, wouldn’t you check out the reviews before you hit buy?
Well the same rules are likely to be exercised when you are applying for a job as well. An employer wants to feel confident they have selected the best person for the job, whether this is at the interview stage or when they are offering you the position. Therefore, they will check you out online!
