Google: This doesn't just mean getting any Googlers you might know to invite you down to the Googleplex for pasta fagoogle and organic argoogla salad. In today's job market, the first page of search results for your name is more important than your resume. Check that your home page, projects page, and resume page are all valid HTML and up to date.
