On my previous post, i miss out other opportunities digital platforms offered in curating our online professional profile. Social media gives us the opportunity to create a unique resume and shows our competitive advantages. Bear in mind, different individual fits different platform. Could be linked to the way they use the platform as resident or visitor.
From Patrick’s blog, i learned how personal brand might also work in conjunction with business brand. Digital platforms also allow us to present our resume in a distinct way. Truly shows our value, not only based on our education and work experiences. Here’s one example:
Siew Woon’s blog and Ryan’s blog remind me although LinkedIn is widely used; It is more advantageous for thus rich in experiences and connection. For fresh graduates, using social network might be a better tools to create exposure. Namely WordPress, Twitter, or About.me. Speaking of exposure, Leah Cowan’s blog mentioned Tweriod. An innovation in digital world that brings more chance to be noticed. Twitter could help us to create relation. Like what Sarah Hewitt mentioned, we won’t lose anything by simply say hi and thanks for thus help us in gaining additional knowledge for our blog-post.
In addition, Here’s my brand strategy :
- SWOT analysis of ourselves to know what makes you different, what you should include in your profile. It is about quality, not quantity.
- Getting to know who is our targeted audiences [future employer]
- Chose several platforms that work best for us [twitter, WordPress, LinkedIn, and maybe About.me]
- Integrate all the platform so they will point back at you and make you noticed [use same username and same photo]
- monitor and control. Keep your social media private and regularly update your platform. Maybe we can do a regular check to delete contents that not applicable for us anymore.
