Look Away: Managing Online Persona Expectations

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We know that the Internet allows us to stay connected with family and friends, find romance, share expertise and skills, advocate for social issues, and advance our careers. It is a space that allows us to grow up and try on new identities. For most of us, what we do online affects many (and perhaps all) aspects of our lives.
So what happens if most of us, or even enough of us, focus our digital energies on maintaining our ideal work persona online? What if we take the common career advice to manage each piece of online information as if future employers might see it? Would we lose more than we gain?
This lively, research-supported session will explore companies’ aggressive cybervetting practices, the changing notions of what it means to fit in an organization, and how employees can balance transparency and privacy online. Let us find alternative ways to fulfill organizational due diligence while also respecting that people, including ourselves, have lives outside of work.
