Around a decade ago, only artists started to put their portfolios under personal websites. It wasn’t until the late 2000’s that everyone noticed a polished personal online brand could lead to a better job. Now-a-days we’re almost expected to have a public resume on LinkedIn, as well as a personal website decked out with blog posts, social links, and personality traits.
As someone involved in hiring I have noticed my tendency to swing to the candidate with a better looking website. Especially the personal aspect. I like to know if their personality will meld well with our corporate culture. I want to know what color scheme and designs they use to know what creativity they could bring to the job. I can also enjoy an analytical approach of an infographic style personal resume, where work experience and skills are easily laid out.
