If you want to advance in your career, one of the best ways to do that is by appearing online.
These days, employers are looking online. Employers use professional networking sites such as LinkedIn to look for job candidates.
Not only that but building an online presence can help grow your network beyond the office or region where you work. Online communities and social media allow you to interact with others in your field -- regardless of location.
With a stronger network in your field, you open yourself up to more job opportunities and visibility in your industry.
So why not create an online personal brand to help advance your career? Creating an online presence can help you stand out from others in your field.
When applying for a higher position, having an online presence shapes what employers see when they look you up online. Curating an online presence shows creativity and gives future employers opportunities to learn about you beyond a resumé.
The online persona you present online can be someone’s first impression about you.
Here’s how you can create a captivating online presence:
Everyone who applies for the next job will be submitting a resumé and cover letter. These things can display your skills and work experience, but developing an online presence can also show your personality and values.
By developing an online presence, you have the opportunity to stand out from the rest of the applicants. Future employers can get an insight into your own values, personality, and work ethic - and get to know you on a deeper level than they would just reading your resumé.
The work you do to build an online presence will undoubtedly leave a positive impression on future employers and help you advance in your career!
