Job hunting or just surfing the web?

Posted on May 14, 2007. Filed under: Educational, Resources |

Think you’re competitive in the marketplace in your hunt for a new job?  Maybe you’ve got all the qualifications but your employer wants to know more.  What are your interests?  Hobbies?  Opinions?  Topics not always covered during an interview, but sometimes covered later on by the interviewer in a sneak attempt to learn more about you– online.

Or maybe you’re an entrepreneur without a website seeking clients and new jobs.  How will your potential customers find out more about you if not through word-of-mouth?

According to a story by Good Morning America,(http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/TakeControlOfYourLife/story?id=3171218&page=1) it’s more important than ever to establish a digital identity for yourself– and there are lots of free, easy and safe ways to do it!

What sites and information comes up when you Google search for yourself online?  Maybe the results will disappoint you.  If you’re ready to take the plunge and put yourself “out there” on the World Wide Web, Tory Johnson suggests you try networking website:

www.linkedin.com

Linked In can give you the online space to showcase your talents by posting your resume and because it’s a networking community, it doesn’t appear to your current employers are though you’re searching for a new job.  Johnson also suggests: Women for Hire Network at http://network.womenforhire.com and www.zoominfo.com for profile building.

 Is it time for you to “get out there”?
