The effervescing online market is ever subjected to changes. It is said- change is the only attribute that is constant in online professionalism. So it is very hard to maintain your professional status in top position. Again the top position is crucial to get the best openings in the job market or to keep the flow of revenues steady for your business concerns. So, here are some ways by which you may maintain your online professional status.
Way#1. Maintain your Profile in Social Networking Sites
Social networking sites may get you connected to the top professionals. Sites like LinkedIn, Facebook are extremely popular when recruiters are looking for talent, or serious clients are looking for potential sellers. You should maintain an updated profile and make a sound proforma with all of your talents, expertise and work experience to attract people. You can also include your awards and honors in the showcase section.
Way#2. Do not Juxtapose Personal Images in Professional Profiles
While you are looking to maintain your professional status, do not use it in connection with personal information like pictures that were shot at a party or videos that you have shot for your kid! This can hurt your professional status, and after all recruiters are not interested in your personal life at all. But if there is something happening in your professional life like bagging the best CEO award, be confident in adding it.
In fact, sensor your posts and keep track of what people are writing on the wall. Your professional status is a lot affected by what the recruiters find on the walls of your profile!
Way#3. Avoid Joining Forums, Groups, and Fan Pages Irrelevant to your Profession
Having a network of people who are already in the business and are doing better than you broadens your chances of bagging the dream job that you are looking for. Join groups and fan pages of industry with which you are working and dealing. In this way, whenever there is your product being searched you will be visible as well as your professional status will not be diluted with unnecessary links.
Way# 4. Check the Brand
Have you checked your visibility on Google? What is the brand that you are associated with? Just Google your name and look at what people are seeing about you. For example, if you search for Sherri Worth you will notice that she is an expert in reconstructive dentistry and has given the perfect smile to many people by her cutting-edge practice. This is precisely what she does and maintains her online professional status well with her restorative dental expertise!
Way#5. Compare with Other Profiles
If you take a closer look at the LinkedIn profiles, you would notice that some profiles seem to be more alluring than others. So why would you stay back? Filter past company, present company, geography, industry, school and look out for all the possible profiles. Try to gauge your profile against them and create an alluring profile that you feel best.
