Your Reputation Score replaces your old Search Score

Your new Reputation Score gauges how your entire online presence helps or hurts your career – think of it like a credit score for your online presence. It identifies factors that are putting your career at risk, including potentially damaging search results, risky social media posts, and inappropriate social media images. It also looks at positive information about you on the web that benefits your career, like well-optimized and up-to-date properties. Your new Reputation Score is a numeric value, with the highest possible score being 800. We also provide a range of “very poor” to “excellent” as a guide to show how you stack up.

What to expect: Your new Reputation Score may be lower than your previous Search Score

You may notice that your new Reputation Score is comparatively lower than your previous Search Score that gave you a letter grade – that’s ok! Your Search Score only rated the first page of search results. Your new Reputation Score looks at your entire online presence, including search results, social media posts, and images. As online screening becomes more and more prominent, employers are now looking beyond just search results.

Your Reputation Report replaces your old Report Card

When you first log in, you’re brought to your Reputation Report – this is your dashboard. In the previous version, the information housed here was known as your “Report Card”. The Reputation Report provides an overview of your online presence, including:

  • A summary of your personal brand (how many high-quality properties you’ve created and kept updated)

    Madhulita and Kolkata Odissi Utsav 2018
    A message and picture may be worth a thousand words. It is well known folk. Today’s folk is that yesterday (January, 26, 2018) I have got one SMS from famous Odissi dancer Madhimita Mohapatra. She invited me. Her invitation message was ‘you’re cordially invited to the Odissi dance performance by Madhulita Mahapatra (noted Odissi dancer from Bengaluru) today, January 26th at 7 pm at Jogesh Mime Academy, 95, Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Road, Kalighat will be happy with your gracious presence on the program. Best regard, Madhulita.’ It is also I can remember that few days ago I have got an E-mail from Madhulita.
    I would like to give my heartfelt Congratulations of the Republic Day to Madhulita, who is truly smiling bird of the Odissi dancing natural sky. I am proud of her invitation because yesterday she was a dancing artist on the Jogesh Mime Academy stage with her famous ‘Odissi Mudra’. It was not need to tell the full story. She has called us to visit ‘Jayadeva Kenduly’ of Birbhum from the West Bengal of India to listen ‘Gita Govinda’ with poet Jayadeva . It was an solo act and dance by Madhulita. She came into Kolkata with her Bengaluru school student dancer Pallavi Maiti, Banashri Mahaptra and Sathi Prsad.
    Madhulita She has chosen her dance item from ‘abhinaya’ based on ashtapadi, Ramate Yamuna Pulina Vane from the popular Sanskriti epic. Geeta Govinda written the poet Jayadeva. Dance item name was ‘Ramate Yamuna Pulina vane’. A set of the dancing artist of the Odissi Utsav in Kolkata have given classical touch of Odissi ghrana dance, music and culture during the ‘Repulic Day of India’s program at Jogesh Myme Academy.
    Young talented Madhulita Mohapatra has carved a niche as one of the leading Odissi exponents in south India. A disciple of Guru Shri Gangadhar Prdhan, Guru Smt. Aruna Mahanty & Guru Shri Pabitra Kumar Prdahan, she is admired & applauded by the connoisseurs & critics alike, for her profound artistry and her innate abhinaya quality. Madhulita is the recipient of the prestigious IIDF 2017 award & BCKA Yuva Kala Pratibha award.
    I salute Madhulita and her school team for the Indian traditional dance and culture. We are waiting for her next creative art with dance and mime together to explore classical touch in Kolkata every year. Many thanks Madhulita for your homely performance and invitation also. I can recite before closed my little write up as a little critic that an invitation from the Madhulita and ‘Odssi Dance Festival’ authority, it is regarded as the team of behind modern Odissa.
