Most people like to have their resume in a word document; you’re not taking your career seriously.
According to Work folio, a company that develops applications for professional visibility, 56% of all hiring managers are more impressed by a candidate’s personal website than any other personal branding tool-however, only 7% of job seekers actually have a personal website.
Miriam Salpeter, a job search coach, owner of Keppie Careers, and author of Social Networking for Career Success and 100 Conversations for Career Success, agrees. She says: “Having your own website allows you to control what people will find when they search for you.
More and more, we hear that employers are Googling candidates to learn more about them. When you have your own website, you have an opportunity to demonstrate a portfolio of information about you and to provide further information (via links) so employers can learn more about you.”
