Tips from the CDC

Clean Up Your Online Image Before You Apply
Sure, you've updated your résumé and ironed your suit, but have you tidied up your Facebook page? Remember what happens online will stay online for the world to see. Don't let poor judgment in photos, videos, complaints, status updates or bad press lead to a decision not to hire you. To read more helpful tips on marketing yourself professionally, please visit the NY Times blog page.
Networking Using Business Cards
Always carry business cards. It's crucial to marketing your skills and services, and it helps people remember you after an event. To read more about how your business card can help increase your chances of landing a job or developing a business opportunity, click here.
