I never really Google myself. I tend to avoid seeing what information is out there about myself and people with my name. At first I Googled “Kristyn Stricker” to see what came up. What first came up was profiles to Facebook, LinkedIn, Merit, and Google+ pages. All of these pages were mine. Most of them were incomplete profile, since I might create a profile once in awhile, and then forget about it. For the images there were several photos from school activities and Google+. Four of them were actually of me, the rest were of other people.
Next my Google search was more specific. I searched for “Kristyn Brooke Stricker.” The first link was to Twitter (it was a tweet were I mentioned my middle name). The next two links were not related to me. The four one was the announcement of the Dean’s and President’s List for Chadron State College. For my images there were only one imagine of me. This was my profile picture for Twitter.
My online information does not say a lot about me. I try to limit my time on social media, which leaves the links from the schools. I think the links from the schools I attend will work in my favor in the future. They are a source that proves I am a good student and care about my studies.
If my future employers Google me all they will find are social media outlets, which I barely use. For me social media is a great what to see how my friends and family are doing. It also gives me a chance to get caught up on the news. This leads me to barely post anything on any of them. For my imagines they are nice pictures, that are mostly personal photo I have posted out on the internet. These are from my sister’s graduation reception. If not personal information then it seems to be connected to the schools I have attended. Personally, my future employers should not find any bad information about me. I hope to continue this trend into the future.
