Consider creating your personal website
Optimise your personal brand and control content about you
A study by Workfolio revealed that 56% of all hiring managers regard a candidate's personal website (for example davidgriffiths.com.au) more highly than any other personal branding tool. It also showed that only 7% of job seekers actually have a personal website!
So keeping these statistics in mind, if you don't have a personal website, you may want to think about getting one.
Social Check Recommends:
Tip #1 - Create a hub for your personal brand:
A personal website allows you to be in control of what is seen about you. It acts as the hub of your personal brand. It is available for all to see, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is a great asset for employers and hiring managers, so make sure it represents the real you in every way, from content through to style.
Tip #2 - Reflect the real you:
Recruiters are vetting candidates from what they find online. Make sure your personal website reflects you in an honest and compelling way.
Tip #3 - Maintain your personal website:
Treat your personal website as an online CV or portfolio; be sure to include links to other professional online platforms that you are present on for employers and hiring managers to view.
Tip #4 - Add a personal touch:
Your personal website can also allow you to voice your opinion on topics you are passionate about. This can be expressed through a blog section or forum on your website, which you can invite others to contribute to. This will also help build your reputation as an expert in your line of work.
Tip #5 - Work with others:
Encourage others to collaborate with you on projects or offer your advice to others on your personal website. This will help build your professional network, and open doors to new opportunities.
