Are you cyberly invisible?
Anyhow, you need some presence out there in never never land. CareerBuilder says start with LinkedIn. I say LinkedIn blows. You decide.
There is also Facebook, Plaxo, XING, Viadeo and a ton of others.
If you have a common name, add an initial or identifier of some sort. Star Smart Ass Lawrence—along those lines.
Also be sure you don’t have Digital Dirt—controversial associations (guilt guilt), memberships, lawsuits or arrest records. Yeah—don’t get arrested.
If you do have dirt, wash over it with new positive info! A speech you gave, a meeting you attended, something you published—get it all out there.
Sometimes you just have to wait—time moves you up in the engines.
