Vizibility offers users a way to customize the search results that can be found about them via Google. I recently had the opportunity to interview James Alexander, CEO of Vizibility.
What exactly is Vizibility and how does it work?
Vizibility helps people get found online. With the first SearchMe Button for Google we help people take control of their online identities by allowing them to control what people find about them online. Users can customize their top five Google search results into a free and permanent SearchMe link that can be put on a resume, profile site, business card – anywhere someone wants to get found online.
When a Vizibility SearchMe button, link or QR code is clicked, accurate search results are displayed helping people make a killer first impression. We also display the search query right in Google, so the person doing the searching can be confident the information displayed is accurate and authentic.
Additionally, when a Vizibility QR code is scanned using a smart phone or mobile device, our mobile app can optionally share your photo, business card details, all your social and profile sites, and your vCard, along with your curated search results.
Why should students and recent grads care about what information can be found about them online?
According to ExecuNet, 86% of executive recruiters report using search engines to validate candidates. Searching for people by name only, however, often returns inaccurate results. 45% of recruiters have eliminated candidates based on what appears (or does not appear) about them online. And 39% of U.S. HR professionals hired candidates because the information online about them supported their background and qualifications. (more…)
