Develop ways to create an Authentic Digital Professional Profile?
There are over 101 ways to do it, you just have to see which categories of job-scopes you belong to in order to successfully land a dream job.
The most important pointers to note are Professionalism and Creativity.
In order to achieve this, you have to maintain and uphold your reputation and image online and offline. Posting comments/information online is an irreversible action, there may be a screenshot of it already circulating even if you decide to delete it after few seconds.
You have to differentiate between professional and personal accounts when you are online. This is to draw a clear line between what you want to show your friends/family VS the rest of the world.
“Make your smile your logo, your personality be your business card, how you leave others feeling after an experience with you becomes your trademark.”
In order to stand out from the rest of the other candidates applying for the same position, you have to appear creative in order to attract the attention of employers. Identify unique talents, portray impactful strengths that can complement your weaknesses.
For example, your employer is tired of the same old “Work well in teams, teamwork”, why not bring it up a notch by inputting “Plays the roles of leader and follower whichever situations arise”
Show your employers that your core values, mission and vision are in line with the company’s and you will enjoy your work to the fullest once recruited. On top of that, pen down your passions, life goals and personal brand vision so that everyone knows you are ambitious, having the will to succeed.
