Feb. 5 workshop to explore how to manage an online image

If someone searches for you on the web, Facebook or in Google Images, what do they find? Ever wonder what your online image says about you?

Tracy Bicknell-Holmes, professor of libraries and engineering librarian for the University Libraries, will lead a workshop on managing your online image at 11:30 a.m., Feb. 5. The workshop, which is part of the "Learn at the Libraries" series, is in Love Library, room 111.

According to a recent Pew Internet poll, 69 percent of adults 18 years and older use social networking sites. And, according to Forbes magazine, within 10 years a person's online presence will replace their resume as the primary way that potential employers find out about job candidates. Yet few of adults consciously manage their online image.

The workshop will include tips for how to see what a potential employer might see; where to search to find different images/posts of you; and how to proactively managing your online presence to cultivate a professional image.

The workshop is free and open to the public. For more information or to register, go to http://unl.libcal.com/event.php?id=15886.
