As an entrepreneur or intrapreneur, you’re always looking for ways to boost your career and take it to the next level. Utilize new digital tools and programs that will support you in a multitude of ways so you won’t stay stagnant in your current role. Move upward and onward through the use of digital resume tools, online skill development courses, portfolio-building websites and social media networking. When you use these digital tools you will be more equipped to reach your ultimate career aspirations. Here are some tips on how you can make use of tech tools to get ahead in your career:

Digital Resume

A digital resume is imperative in today’s world of online job searches and employer recruiting. The presence of an online resume also creates more points of entry for employers with open positions that fit your skills and experience. Use websites like LinkedIn to build your resume and increase your visibility to employers. Once you’ve established a solid profile for yourself, begin searching company LinkedIn pages to learn more about their operations and any current job openings they may have. Amway’s LinkedIn page, for example, gives you a solid look at the company’s essential information and the skills they seek for future employees.

Online Skill Development

Expand your skills and proficiencies through online courses. Mind Tools is an online learning platform that helps you pick up career-relevant skills, strategies, techniques and knowledge. The tool kits the company provides can be used to improve leadership skills, problem solving, time management, project management and creativity. This online program will help you sharpen your professional skills and expand your business knowledge. For those who need a little help in the creative department, try Adobe Learn. Adobe Learn will help you develop your creative photography editing, graphic design formation and sketch creation, so you may effectively market your business or yourself as a potential employee. There are a number of online tutorials that can help you build your knowledge in the realm of digital creativity.

Portfolio

Make sure you have the ideal digital space to showcase your portfolio. Your collection of work will really shine if you have a well-designed interface to frame it. Your portfolio, or personal website, should be user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing. A useful tool that will help you build a beautiful website is SquareSpace. This site builder system allows you to choose a template that best represents the culture of your company or of your professional self. The templates can support different content types and styles, be it pages, galleries, blogs, commerce, calendars and more. Your site can be accessible through all devices, as your website design will automatically include a unique mobile experience that maintains the aesthetic of your site.

Networking

The old adage, “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know” is a legitimate point to take into consideration as you cultivate the growth of your career. You may have a slew of skills that will impress potential employers and a wonderful track-record, however these factors may be diminished if they aren’t reaching the right audience. If you create connections, however, you can make a more personable or impressionable connection with potential employers or clients. Stay up to date with your social networking through social media like Twitter and Instagram. These platforms can help you showcase your ideas and work as well as reach out to like-minded individuals — especially those who would be valuable business connections.
