At a recent dinner we had in honor of Diwali, some of the newer employees were referring to me as “the guy on the home page.” I feel a little like the fellow who brandishes his pants on the Subway advertisements! (Seriously, it’s been a lot of fun and a very good chance to improve my media chops. I’m also considering buying some nubby ties.)
That was funny: I actually did get mistaken for the other Matthew Rothenberg while on the road to promote “You’re Better Than Your Job Search” with Marc Cenedella.
The last night of our tour, in Chicago, our host at the bookstore introduced Marc as CEO of TheLadders — then began to read off my bona fides as social technologist for Flickr! I stopped her and cleared up the confusion.
It was actually a great object lesson in our career guidance to Google yourself, the better to be ready for any identity UFOs.
