Before I start on my reflections and thoughts, watch this short video which I have created using VideoScribe.

Now that I’ve captured your attention, I will move on to my REFLECTIONS. Prior to this module, all my online platforms were nothing close to professional, they were purely for interacting with friends/family and keeping up with them. I found out that I was a Digital Resident in Topic 1!

Through the 5 topics, I have to admit I gained an abundance of insight and knowledge regarding the digital world and the Internet, including researching on the various Ethical & Unethical issues regarding Social Media.

I took this opportunity to create professional LinkedIn, Twitter profiles, cleared up my Facebook and also replaced my “childish” email address.

As shown in the slideshow, I opted for Multiple Identities after doing much research back in Topic 2. I created a separate Twitter account for official and business related issues and tweets, with links to my LinkedIn and WordPress sites. With this change, I can certainly set a lasting first impression for my potential employers in the near future.

On it, I also followed accounts that will give me insights about the current affairs and updates around the world so that information will be readily at my fingertips.

LINKEDIN

Prior to this module, I didn’t realize the importance of LinkedIn, so I chose not to utilize it. However, currently, with an attractive and interesting ‘Summary Of Me’ in LinkedIn, I’m sure that I will be able to stand out from the rest of the other candidates. Through this module, I realized this is indeed useful and crucial in landing me the job of my choice. Hence, I took this opportunity to create a Digital Professional Profile for myself and it turned out really well!

EMAIL

Instead of the childishnoobymamaemail which I created when I was 10 years old, I decided to create a new professional one for work-related and official emails. This is to give a good impression to my employers and also my clients in the future whenever I need them to get in touch with me.

WORDPRESS

Similarly, for WordPress, I didn’t even know what it was before this module. However, I grew to love publishing blog posts through this opportunity. It enables me to share my thoughts and feelings about various topics with the world. I’m certain that I will continue to utilize this site as my public journal for all to read.

FUTURE PLANS?

This module has taught me a range of lessons, from being professional digitally, to exploring uses of Social Media (other than friends/family). I wasn’t a fan of blogging but that isn’t the case now.
[Props to Sarah, Lisa & Nicholas!]

I am venturing into the Marketing Sector, so there is a need to portray myself with professionalism. These platforms will be able to aid me in this and this is definitely something I want to do for my future career.

#MANG2049 did equip me for the future!

The learning isn’t over. It only just began.
