Claim Your Personal Online Records with ZoomInfo
ZoomInfo doesn’t just aggregate information about you into a single personal record. Instead, it allows you to manually claim your profiles. Doing so helps you present the best possible you to hiring managers.
Even if you think you aren’t online, you still may be. So you need to be aware of what people can find out about you through an online search. Even if you don’t own a computer, people can use the readily available online tools to find your personal information, including home address, phone number, and estimated annual income. Scary? Yes, it is.
Some artifacts that show up in ZoomInfo search results may be about you and others not, so you can claim the ones you want in order to create a more rounded profile of yourself. ZoomInfo pulls from current information, such as blog posts or news items, as well as static public records.
What’s nice about ZoomInfo is that you can create an account and begin claiming profiles. Do this before someone else claims them for you. If any bit of information is inaccurate or irrelevant to your current job search, remove it. You have full control over what’s included in your ZoomInfo profile. And ZoomInfo gives preference to profiles that are claimed by members.
Records that you manually claim and verify with ZoomInfo rank higher than unclaimed records, which means you have a good chance of showing an HR recruiter the real you online.
