Jobseekers need to take control of their online presence

Make an excellent impression on potential employers with your online presence.

My client Cody’s Keyboard Club has a full-time job, eight private students, and the opportunity to start a before- and after-school program less than two months from the launch of his website. Cody ramped up this quickly because he had a well developed idea, a good message, and a strong email list.

If you are looking for work – whether you are looking for a job or looking for clients – can help you spread the word to people who are looking for what you do.

Do not believe the naysayers

Do not accept the perspective that says there’s too much competition or worse “somebody’s already doing that.” Stand out from the crowd with a good website, online profile, and a social media strategy that informs a target audience about your array of services.

Social media is here to stay

Regardless of what job-seekers think of social media personally, to succeed in today’s marketplace, resumes based on the old-fashioned paper resume concepts are just not enough. Whether you are looking for a job or looking for clients, online resources let you tell your whole story – not just where you worked and what you did. The depth of a website allows you to demonstrate who you are, what you do, what you bring to the table, and other pertinent information. Potential employers will have an excellent impression of you if their first exposure is an engaging website and LinkedIn profile.

Do you know how to highlight your results and successes using multimedia? Do you make an excellent impression on potential employers who type your name in a search engine?
