How do you begin owning digital terrain? It starts by creating the right digital dirt! What am I talking about? If you don’t appear on page one of Google, you should. And, with a little work, you can create stuff that can get found. That is, if you care what your future employer sees when they search for you online.
In today’s On Careers post, I talk about some of the tools that are available to create a visual impression of who you are and what you do. Some of them are pretty cool. I am not suggesting that they replace your resume, but with the growing consumption of information over mobile devices, more and more people are responding positively to well-crafted images over text.
Head on over to On Careers and see what tools you can use to build digital terrain.
There are new tools all the time. Karla Porter shared this on Twitter. It is by vizify.com. UPDATE: Vizify was acquired by Yahoo! and is no longer available.
It is a slideshow a bit like Prezi. And in case you are familiar with Prezi, you can see an example done by a job seeker here.
And don’t forget video!
