What else will you need to stay marketable in the future? That's fun to think about. The resume is so static and employers don't even really like looking at them.
That's why LinkedIn is so helpful to employers. It allows them to see who you are more fully. Of course they only want to find people who will fit in their company and who have the talent they think they are looking for.
Once part of LinkedIn, join groups, comment, share information and get recommendations!
Don't stop there. Have you googled yourself? What comes up? Anything? What can you do to change this? Comment on blogs- add your expertise (carefully of course). If you want, you could start blogging.
Do you have a website? A domain with your name? This can also make you easier to find. What would you put on your website?
LinkedIn profile link, resume, sample work, links to articles you've written or presentations you've made, links to articles written about your work. Video of you in action. There are tons of options. Louise Fletcher at Blue Sky Resumes posted this over the top, yet funny post related to this.
As technology changes, we also need to think about how we need to change with it to maximize our self-promotion.
