Resume Builders and Profile Enhancers;
Prepare your presentation for a new professional environment

 

In today's high tech, remote and virtual environment, there is no limit or reason not to continue your education and build online profiles of your skill set while improving your personal skills as well. In today's fast paced and competitive work atmosphere you must go beyond your cover letter and resume to attract employers.


Anyone passionate about their profession or serious about a will to succeed has a thirst for continuing education. Whether you are looking for industry specific training, higher education, or looking to build an online profile of your skill set to attract opportunities, there are many channels and options available, and many times at little to no cost.


Many times you can find great tutorials, Q&A sessions, and lectures from prestigious schools simply on YouTube and you can find a tremendous amount of information by doing a Google search and for many industries finding government sites which provide the most accurate and dependable information but your resume needs steps beyond this.


As the work environment changes, more and more companies will look to evaluate candidates beyond a meet and greet and your standard resume.

 

Beyond YouTube, there are Ted Talks that tackle a variety of issues, Coursera which allows you to step into classrooms from some of the best schools in the country. The Khan Academy which is highly endorsed by Bill Gates. Grovo which allows continuing education online and at your pace. Treehouse allows users to learn programming code through a unique system and Smarterer which we here use with our Virtual Assistants which allows testing and training in a variety of areas from Customer Service, to Excel, Coding, and Marketing Strategies.


Many similar sites, including Smarterer not only test and train users but allow users to build an online profile of activity and progress which can be shared with prospective employers. In today's efficiency minded world, employers want the best person for the job. If the companies open position is Excel heavy they are more likely to hire a candidate that has great Excel test scores as well as great references and great work history.


Bottom line, its a fast changing, highly competitive environment and we all must try to give ourselves that little edge that it takes. For almost all of us, there is a source that can enhance our careers.
