Looking for your next job or internship? According to a Business News Daily article from March 2020, you should assume your potential employer will be doing an online search of you before they extend an offer.
“70% of employers use social media to screen candidates during the hiring process, and about 43% of employers use social media to check on current employees.”
What does this tell us? The way you appear online DEFINITELY will affect your employability. So: take control of it! Create the content you want potential employers to see, and find out how to project that professional “I’m a great hire” attitude via your online brand.
Jessica Mohlman is a 2015 Northland alumna who graduated with majors in Biology and Natural Resources (Fisheries & Wildlife Ecology emphasis).

Curious? Google Jessica and see what pops up! Pretty impressive, huh?
