Boost Your Online Branding with a WordPress Blog

As a job seeker, a website can be key to bolstering your professional brand, and complementing your use of LinkedIn and other social media for networking.  Blog articles can showcase knowledge and connections in your field, and a simple website can sharpen your "value proposition" as a volunteer, a solo consultant or a future employee.  During this presentation Gary will explore the following:

  • Pros and cons of building a professional website
  • Simple website software to consider before WordPress
  • Benefits of using WordPress.Com as a basic site-builder
  • Key software concepts, cost and how to link with social media
  • Demo of a professional website and blog
