Another tip from Kim Komando

Claim your Google profile
The Internet is a great tool for job seekers. Job sites make it easier than ever to find job openings. And you can learn more about a particular employer with a simple Web search.

But the Internet also poses perils for job seekers. That's because employers are increasingly using the Web to research applicants.

You know this, though. That's why you followed the advice in my recent column. You made sure your Facebook profile is clean. And you looked to see what was written online about you.

That's great! But there's a problem. There are other people with the same name as you. An employer could think someone else's raunchy MySpace profile is yours.

Fortunately, Google Profiles can help. You can create your own personal page on Google. When someone searches your name, your profile is on the first page of results.

You can write a short blurb about yourself and your experience. You can also allow people to contact you through your profile.

Best of all, you can add links. For example, you can link to your networking profiles. That way, you won't be mistaken for someone else!

Google Profiles isn't just for job seekers. It is also great for reconnecting with long-lost friends. It provides an easy way for anyone to find you.
