In my previous job search post I talked about the CV not being dead and was perturbed about the fact this paper-based tradition of sharing your skills had not yet turned fully digital.
Some recent blog posts about the need to go digital and use the free tools out there have cheered me up.
- The redundant public servant is starting to see the benefits of using social media tools,
- Sukh Pabial bemoans badly written CVs and urges jobseekers to go digital
- Mashable provides some great tips on optimising your Linkedin profile
- And Bill Boorman adds some tips for adding some 'bling' to you Linkedin profile
There are loads more advice articles out there but these are the ones I came across since my last job search post.
I'm particularly interested in the Linkedin CV builder . . . going to check that out soon. In actual fact, as I said last time, I am looking for an overhaul of my blog, Twitter etc and am looking at a multi-media approach to presenting me and what I have to offer. Be afraid.
Thinking of getting video testimonials – or is that naff?
