You are probably tired of everyone asking if you are ready to spread your wings and tackle your next biggest challenge: college. You've got your essay, grades, and resume but how is that visible online? Much of the things you've been told to prepare used to be very sound advice but may fall quite short today. In the past it was enough to get higher grades and draft a killer essay. That simply isn't true now with all information at everyone's fingertips it is very easy to get a very different impression of a candidate even before your chance at a first impression face to face. Don't get disguraged with the changing playing field, adapt!

What should I do to appear consistant in how I come across?

There are several things you can do to control your online brand. The very first one is to clean up or make private every post, image, or comment that doesn't reflect the "you" that will conquor your future challenges. You can enlist the help of someone you haven't connected with to see what things are visible to those outside your close friends. Browse through all your posts and hide or adjust anything that won't fit in with future you.

Is there anything I can do to create a better view of my qualities online?

Absolutely! You can build a site highlighting the best qualities you have and showcasing those unique abilities you have to make yourself standout in the best way possible. Websites serve lots of purposes these days from buying things to finding better information. Why should it be any different for you? Some people aren't comfortable highlighting their abilities and if that applies to you enlist the help of someone to craft your brand. Businesses have used marketing such as websites for years to build individual's impressions of who they are and what they are about. Harness those super powers to build your future the way you want it to be.
