Googling their employees and job seekers are becoming more common andin that we live our lives more and more on the internet it becomes moreimportant how we act and to think about what you publish on the internet.Each time you press a key, will leave a digital footprint behind and thereforeit’s important to know how to deal with this. The purpose was to describehow a person strategically can proceed to build an identity on the internet toget benefits in the job seeking process in the media industry and to describethe importance of the digital identity in the recruitment process in a smallertown. We’ve used a qualitative approach and made eight interviews withrecruiters from the media and also people who have built a digital identity.We’ve used Bauman’s theory about consumer society, Montoya’s eight lawsof personal branding and also theories about profiling, and communicationsplanning to analyze the material. We’ve found that a digital identity plays animportant role in the professional context in the media industry and cansometimes be crucial if a person gets a job or not. The first thing to do whenbuilding a digital identity is to find your core value, set goals and define thetarget audience in order to adapt to this when you convey your message. It’salso important to choose the right channel to carry the message through. Thedigital identity also needs to be updated and maintained regularly.
