-- May 23, 2010 - Boca Raton, Florida -- Earlier this May, Syracuse University gave this year’s graduates a very special going away present—a six-month subscription to an ‘online reputation’ service that will help them manage their Internet reputation.
The university did not say how much it paid for the service but said the “online reputation’ service helps people manage the image portrayed about them on the Internet.
“Syracuse University gets it” said Herbert Tabin Co-Author of Do It Yourself Online Reputation Management – A Step-By-Step Guide ($24.95 Amazon.com ISBN-13: 978-0578050867)
. “They understand that often an employers’ first place to research a potential job applicant is right on the Internet and when the time comes to chose between two seemingly equal job applicants, employers will often chose the one that presents the best online image. The fact is this is one of the most challenging job markets in years and employers are only going to pick the best applicants and if you have anything online that is embarrassing on controversial those employers will most likely find it in a simple search and significantly reduce your chances of getting hired” .
“People believe what they read on Google” said Craig Agranoff Co-Author of Do It Yourself Online Reputation Management “That is why it is so important to have your most positive attributes pop up first when anyone does a search of your name on search engines like Google and Yahoo. So the question is what does the Internet say when you do a vanity search of your own name? If its not the image you want portrayed you need to do something about it and that’s where our book Do It Yourself Online Reputation Management can really help.”
