Abstract: The aim of the present study was to analyze virtual impression management behavior of students on a German online career network site. In addition, it was analyzed if gender specific differences would exist in the subjects’ impression management behavior. In general, the study indicated that students indeed present themselves in career networks like Xing in an idealized way. However, it appears that the students’ Xing profile pages are more realistic than expected. Reasons for these findings are discussed and suggestions for future research are given.
