I think this week’s topic is really useful for me because online professional profile have already became a trend which we cannot avoid to use after graduation. Before doing this week topic I still thought traditional way of recruiting is the main stream. When I doing the foundation year my teacher used to teach us how to make a perfect resume, and it made me think a good resume is the only way to attacked recruiters. However, when these data about how important of online professional profiles are front of my eyes, I have to say paper CV era is coming to an end. And online professional profiles will become more and more important with the development of internet.
My peers’ posts this week is also gave different ideas which are quite interesting. Especially Tobie used the picture of “Trump” which is the most popular topic this week and immediately attracted me. And he thinks blogs is a good way to showcase creativity, passion and dedication but only played a small part of recruiting which I am so agree with him. I think the primary cause is there is only small part of people use blogs now. In other words, blog has already out of style.
Harry also did a good blog this week. He break traditional form of blog which is suit what he what to express – clear and concise information should be available at a ‘quick glance’. He used very brief sentences to highlight how to create the online professional profiles. And the advices he gave are very useful.
This week’s topic really let me learnt a lot. Looking forward next week!
