The purpose of this task is to identify things you want to improve about your scholarly/professional profile. We provide strategies to help you update your online presence and improve access to your scholarship.
Search for your name in your favorite search engine.
Look through the results
Would someone who searches for you get a good impression of your professional career?
Do you have your own website? If yes, is it up-to-date? If no, do you want to have your own website?
Is your CV posted online? If yes, is it up-to-date?
Is there anything outdated or embarrassing? If yes, go ahead and do a quick audit of your social media privacy settings, public posts, old websites, and information posted by other sites. For example, if you have an outdated page from a former employer, contact the web administrator to see if it can be deleted.
Don't worry if you are not happy with any of your answers. Throughout the summer, you will receive guidance and strategies for each of these areas.
