In today’s almost staggeringly competitive marketplace, job seekers (or, for that matter, any professionals who care about their careers) should seek every tool available to market themselves. Make no mistake, creating, promoting, and maintaining a personal brand identity is as much a part of marketing as any product or service advertising campaign. If you’re unable or unwilling to maintain a vibrant online presence, one that is easily accessible and at least somewhat interactive, you will find it difficult to compete for jobs or bolster your professional bona fides.
More recently, it is mobile internet growth — the internet accessed through a smart phone, tablet, or laptop — that is making headlines. Suddenly job seekers also need to ensure that their online presence is packaged in a way that makes it accessible through the mobile internet
Marketing what you have on offer (i.e., your background, training, experience and skill set) requires you to present yourself in a way that is interesting, informative, and engaging. Ideally, you want people to get to know who you are and what value you may be able to add to an organization or enterprise. You also want them to come back from to time to see what’s new with you. To accomplish this, you must refresh your online identity from time to time.
There are numerous online platforms that can assist you in your efforts, including LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and aboutme.com. If used correctly, each of these modalities will increase your online presence. In addition to these social media tools (among others) there is a relative newcomer on the social networking scene that will give you greater virtual visibility and allow you to package and share your mobile online identity. Perhaps it shouldn’t surprise you that it’s called vizibility. A vizibility account provides benefits to job seekers as well as professionals who want to advance their careers by providing an effective tool for packaging and promoting their online presence.
