Obviously, it never happens. So what does work when you’re looking to get noticed?
That’s the subject of an online class I’m teaching in April with Skillshare.
Resume 2.0 is the quickest route toward burnishing your personal “brand” — along with getting all of your wonderful, brilliant and talented online “selves” on the same digital page.
We’ll look at people who have used the web to create wildly successful careers — people like Amanda Palmer, Heather Armstrong, Lois CK and that gal who made $600K with a self published novel and extrapolate and apply their secrets.
By the end of the class your online self will be whipped into fine digital shape through:
A Brilliant Personal Positioning Statement
Whether you’re making chitchat at a party or sharing an elevator with Richard Branson, never again struggle for the answer to the question “What do you do?”
A Strategic Action Plan
Forget about just getting by — what is the prize you are ultimately aiming for? Sundance Grand Jury Prize? Book deal? Major coverage for your startup in Tech Crunch? We’ll map the distance between the here and now and mind-blowing success in your personal Strategic Action Plan.
Creating an online destination that showcases your talents and pulls together the disparate social media channels that you use doesn’t have to be time consuming. In the course, we’ll create personal websites with the Wix platform — a free tool with lots of great looking templates that will help you set up your very own personal website in no time at all.
Along with powerful case studies of those who’ve used the web to supercharge their careers, this course will also teach you:
- How to search-engine-optimize your resume
- LinkedIn: the five key areas where the words you choose can make or break you
- Video – how to use and what to choose to showcase
- Strategies for using the web to uncover the hidden job market
