Optimizing Your Online Presence for Your Career

Whether you’re just starting out, seeking a new opportunity, or looking to advance in your career, managing your online presence is essential. A strong presence can enhance your reputation, visibility, and consideration for prospective opportunities; the alternative can hurt your employability and career altogether without your even knowing!

You don’t have to be an expert to ensure that the image you’re projecting is in line with how you want others to see you. Check out some of these tips from Idealist on managing your online presence. You can also review LinkedIn’s overview on building an effective profile, networking via the platform, and much much more.
