5 rules for you to consider when building your professional profile.

Published in: Business, Technology
  • Great Presentation Joanne! The fifth rule - constantly evolve - is in my opinion one that many people will overlook. Since the whole online social media shift in communication is relatively new - little to no changes have been needed to many professional profiles. However, as time goes on - changes will take place and it will become more and more important for those who are currently engaged in social media to adapt to whatever is about to come next. To be successful in business you have to accept the fact that changes are going to take place day after day. It will be extremely important for professionals to recognize these changes and ultimately accept them for what they are; instead of hoping they will just go away. If a new social media tool pops up and all of the Millennials are signing up and you decide to stay away cause you don’t want to hang with the kids - when the kids hit their 20’s and 30’s - you’ll look nothing more than a wedding crasher who doesn’t know how to dance their dance. Once again - Great presentation Joanne! I enjoyed it..

  17. 17. rule number 4: <br />
  18. 18. improve on your transferrable skills.<br />
