A Little Guide for the Ideal Applicant is under development: this new section of the CyberSelf.ca web space will inform and raise students’ awareness about the importance of projecting a professional image on the Web during AND after a job hunt.
Work conducted by the the team leaded the identification of topic that will be included in the guide. For example:
Can my digital image influence recruiters’ choices?
- My digital identity (the image I project on the Web) :
- What does it currently look like? How to get information on the traces I’ve left on the Web?
- How can I ensure that the image I project on social media is appropriate? What to post, what not to post? Pictures, text (think before you post), opinions, status, etc.
- How to erase negative traces?
After getting a job, what about my digital image and identity? Are there rules to respect?
If you are interested by the project, using one multiple-choice question, we ask your opinion on the relevance of the proposed subjects and, if applicable, your comments, suggestions, etc.
