It’s no secret that the job market is incredibly competitive. Degrees, coursework, and internships on their own don’t necessarily guarantee success when job hunting. According to a recent survey by CareerBuilder, 47% of employers said they were less likely to contact a candidate if they couldn’t find them online, and 20% said they expected candidates to have some form of an online presence.

The good news is, more students are seeing the value in creating a website for themselves where they can package together their achievements and really bring a personalized voice to their experience, creating a digital portfolio that has unlimited reach. This allows them to stand out among the competition, showcase beyond the restrictions of a traditional resume, and offer some control over their online reputation management. Get started below.
