Have you ever googled yourself? Your digital identity can make or break your job prospects! Make sure all your social media profiles are appropriate or hidden, create a Linkedin if you don't have one, and take control of what people can find out about you via a quick Google search (looking at you, tinder match)!

Linkedin Learning

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas".
