communication assignment 6 1

This week we discussed interviewing and negotiation. We could argue that both of these have self-presentation as a central theme. Very often, we fail to consider this self-presentation to our online selves (i.e. online self-presentation). Most curate their online selves to fit a particular persona based on the social platform. Dolly Parton was one of the first to make fun of this practice (please see example below).

Fun aside, employers ARE, more and more, looking to potential employee’s social media sites to gain “insights”.

Challenge Prompt:

For this week’s challenge, there are several steps.

  • First, read THIS short description.
  • Then, take a moment to Google yourself. Search not only for your name but also for your email address(es). Take a screenshot of your search results (include in the submission at the end of your write-up, on the second/third page). What do you think about your results?
  • Now, do you have a Facebook page or Twitter feed? Instagram? Think objectively about the impression your posts to these sites convey. Would you hire you? Why or why not?
  • Have you been known to comment on news items or blogs in ways that might reveal your personal opinions? What would these posts reveal about you?
  • Do you consider these posts to be private? Do you think it’s ethical for employers to be looking at your postings?
  • Finally, how can you create a better online image for yourself?

YES, of course, please feel free to include YOUR example of the Dolly Parton meme if you would like (NOT required, totally optional). Attach it to the very bottom of your response and/or include it in our coffee talk section of Piazza.

Responses should be:

  • about 1 to 2-pages, single-spaced (quality is more important than quantity), PDF or Word Document submission
  • submission is clearly written and well organized
  • Times New Roman font (12 or 11), with 1-inch margins all around
  • no header is necessary (i.e. name, challenge #, class, etc.) since Canvas records all of this for you
  • INCLUDE a SCREENSHOT or PICTURE of your Google search results
