The PDF CV document can then include links to your digital curriculum vitae, and it gives the employer another place to go, but you should make sure your content is carefully crafted to appeal to potential employers. The same must be said about your social media links, and many people create both personal and professional social media accounts, so they can engage with their friends and ‘let loose a little’, but then use a dedicated pro account to appeal to employers.

The only problem is that you need to make sure is that your personal account cannot be accessed by everyone, so you need to be careful if you’re going to implement this type of social media setup. With a website, you can completely customise it to suit your personality and that is one of the biggest advantages. You can then also rank on search engines quite highly for your name, so if anyone is searching for you, they can find you quite easily, which is always an added bonus.
