Why Your Digital Resume Matters: Lessons on LinkedIn
As more of our world, experiences and tools become online-based, the importance of being digitally literate grows, making it a non-negotiable skill to master. From Instagram to Twitter and everything in-between, your digital identity is tightly tied to how your digital literacy shows up through your online presence.
Do your personal social channels, website or online portfolio best represent your experience, unique perspective and your expertise in your particular industry/category/area of interest? If YES, then you're on the right path to making your personal branding online work hard for you. If not, I'm here to help.
As a global social media strategist, I've seen first-hand the power and impact that one simple step (that can be done in under 2hrs!) can have on your digital identity --- updating your LinkedIn profile. Yes, you read that correctly. I strongly believe in the value taking the time to polish up your LinkedIn profile brings. I've seen those that invest their energy and time into this snag a great job, land new clients, create new connections that propel their career growth and be asked to contribute to popular publications within their industry that build-up their thought leadership.
That's why I'm hosting a LinkedIn Masterclass. A deep dive into the platform and personalized recommendations for how you can make your profile best reflect YOU.
