The latest thinking, news and events from the world of Recruitment

Have You Googled Yourself Lately?


My name is Megan Walker, and I like to Google myself. It’s true, and although I don’t think I am narcissistic, I do enter my name in to the search box every so often to see what comes up in the search results. If you have never done this, I urge you to do it now.

Why should I do that?

Good question. What is one of the first things you do when looking at a new candidate or someone you are going to meet for the first time? For me, I tend to search for them online typically on LinkedIn, and maybe even to see if they are on Twitter. There is no ill intent here, but rather an interest in their career history and accomplishments, and are they someone I would like to follow and interact with on social media. I know I can’t be alone in this, so chances are high that others are searching for me too.
