    Great advice: I always look on LinkedIn profiles to see if that person has set up a vanity URL. It looks far more professional, and like they’re paying attention.

    You might look at this neat site that my company runs: where you can check in one search for a consistent username for vanity URLs and social networks. I mention this because I really wish I could be “katehutchinson” on most of these networks, but it’s a common name so it’s often taken. Which is why I set up all my networks on the name KEHutchinson (my first two initials). As far as I know I’m the only one of those out there!
