How to Market Yourself: Part Two

March 21, 2013

Career Advice

We’ve already covered three ways to market yourself: LinkedIn, Twitter, and About.me. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Here are a few more unique ways to showcase your skills online. These sites will help you get noticed and help you take control of your online image.

Slideshare
Not familiar with this site? It’s basically a social network of PowerPoint presentations. What sounds kind of boring at first is actually a great place to broadcast your knowledge. Create a presentation — even if you’re not actually “giving” this presentation — and fill it with insider tips that only a true expert (you!) would know. It will impress employers and  potential networking contacts alike.

Behance
This portfolio sharing site is great for graphic designers and other artists who can display their work visually. If you don’t already have a website, this is a quick-and-easy way to showcase your experience. It can also be used to create an edited selection of your work specifically for an application or employer.

MeetUp.com
No, it’s not a dating site. If you’re looking to network within your industry or expand your skill set with like-minded individuals, MeetUp.com can help. Browse the site for meetups that are scheduled or create your own group.
