Online Reputation Management

What is Online Reputation Management (ORM)?

Any guesses? OK, Let me explain.

Did you know that "Your Past Could Haunt Your Job Search"?

94% of Recruiters use Social Media for Recruiting in the UAE and the GCC. While short-listing candidates, they regularly check a candidate’s Social Profiles, on Twitter, Facebook, and others, which in turn influences their decision to either call the candidate for an interview or dump him/ her for good.

Conducting research on Social Media profiles to understand a candidate's overall behavior and attitude in society also forms a part of the employment background checks that are increasingly becoming mandatory in the UAE and GCC region, what with almost 80% of the workforce being expatriate.

So, the next time you want to post an inappropriate photo of yourself on Facebook; write a rude comment to a past Manager/ colleague; state your negative views about a particular political party, religious community, or nationality...

STOP! Don't Do It!

This could really impact your career!

Now, if you have an account on some social media websites; you already have a digital footprint being created for you (knowingly or unknowingly). If some friend or colleague is tagging you in some weird photo/ comment, then, that will show up when a recruiter searches your name on Google (or any other search engine like Bing, Yahoo, etc.)

That's about negative results when a hiring manager Google's your name. Let's talk about positive results now.

Online Reputation Management

What will that do?

It will be a Game Changer...

Imagine this scenario. 2 person's 'A' and 'B' and YOU have been short-listed for a job vacancy at an organization that you've been desperately trying to get into, since some time. The recruitment manager Google's all 3 of your names.

Person 'B'

Angry Blog Post
My Manager is dumb. I'm waiting to quit.

Irritating Troll
I like your looks. Will you marry me?

Who do you think will be called for an interview? "YOU", right? Who wants to call an unknown person "A", and definitely no company wants an irritating and disrespectful troll like person "B" as an employee.

Online Reputation Management is all about creating your strong personal brand, that shows you in a positive light. Personal branding is more about developing an honest and comprehensive representation of what you truly are, and removing (or pushing back) an image of what you aren't.

We've been in the CV Writing and "POSITIVE PROFILE" creation industry in the GCC since almost 2 decades. Google my name "Shabbir Kagalwala" :-)
