* have a well maintained blog and website

* list membership on boards, charitable/ educational

* include awards and achievements
* cite positive press

aware of potential trouble areas, like:

* uncensored, overly personal

* less than flattering photos tagged to your name
* old media that does not reflect who you are now
* unflattering press
