It's never been more important to have an excellent digital footprint and connections online in order to apply for jobs. To be competitive in today's job market, you not only need to have an impressive online presence but also need to have the right connections in order to be considered for jobs. In your journal, discuss the articles above. What do you agree with? What do you disagree with? How do you feel about your online presence? Does it need work? Do you have a LinkedIn profile? Why or why not?
After writing about this in your journal for five minutes, go out and do something about your digital presence. Join Twitter or LinkedIn to make a profile that will connect you with others that make your digital presence better. Be sure to add projects online that you have done and/or recommendation letters and resumes. Be sure you really put your best self out there for others to see. Use this time to search for and make connections with others that will be impressive for your digital footprint. It isn't just important to have a good digital footprint, it is important to be connected to others who also do.
