If you're job hunting, you might want to revisit your privacy settings page on Facebook.
A recent survey found that 70% of U.S. recruiters and hiring managers polled have rejected candidates after looking them up online, according to CNN.com.
Try Googling your name and see what comes up on the first page of results. Would it pass muster with your next boss? If you think the answer might be no, it's time to start cleaning up your digital dirt.
Here are some tips on managing your online reputation:
-- Reset your privacy settings so that your page on Facebook and other social networking sites can be seen by only those whom you choose.
-- Consider setting up a Google Alert that will send you a notice every time something new about you appears online.
-- If you find unflattering photos of you or information you'd rather a would-be employer not see, contact the owner or administrator of the page or site and ask that it be taken down.
