Digital Footprint

A digital footprint is the collection of all the traces you leave in electronic environments as you use or move through them. Some is content you actively volunteer—like your Facebook profile. Other material is passive—the cookies a site stores in your browser, the content your district collects about your use of their equipment, etc. All this data can be aggregated to build a profile of you and your behavior.

Tips for Creating a Positive Digital Footprint

  • Always THINK
  • Never post anything that you might find embarrassing later.
  • Be careful with the pictures you post on your public profiles. Remember others will see them and judge you based on their content.
  • Change the privacy settings on your social networking sites so that only your Friends can see your information
  • Do not disclose your personal address, phone number, passwords. Bank card numbers…etc even in private messages. There is always the possibility of somebody hacking into your account and finding them.
  • Do not post things to bully, hurt, blackmail, insult, or afflict any kind of harm on others
  • Always keep in mind that once information has been posted online, it can be almost impossible to remove because of archiving and file sharing. Even though you deactivate your accounts, the information may still be retrieved by others.

My Employability Skills

My employability skills include teamwork, interpersonal communication and problem-solving. In a workplace, I use teamwork and cooperation when necessary. I can easily negotiate, discuss and compromise with others in a group. While discussing with others, I can easily look for the best possible outcome for everybody, and I can help others even if it might affect me. I am proficient in dividing portions of an assignment to suit everybody’s needs, oftentimes even if it puts more weight on my shoulders, assuming I have the time and capability to do the extra work. Interpersonal communication falls into a similar category as teamwork. You must be able to cooperate with others according to their needs as well as your own. I am very capable of helping others using communication; for example, if somebody needs something explained to them, I usually do a recap of everything necessary, in order, in a very simple way until they understand. Another example of communication is discussing each outcome before acting on them impulsively. An option might make your life easier, but it could negatively affect somebody else. Problem-solving is another one of my strong points. When, or if, a problem comes up, I can carefully and thoughtfully think of a way out of the problem. I find solutions that are not just good at the moment, but solutions that will also have a good result. For example, if I have incomplete homework, I will not just lie about doing it and later have a teacher realize this, because it would have consequences. I will be honest and find a solution to make up for my missing assignment, whether that means redoing it or doing an alternate assignment to make up for the marks I lost. One of my only weak points, at least that are especially weak compared to others, is flexibility and adaptivity. In a new situation or an unexpected scenario, I tend to get overwhelmed often.
