Lesson 7: Review Your Online Profile


You're not stagnant, so why is your profile?


Your profile is not a deliverable. Instead it is a living, changing, adapting representation of yourself in a virtual community. So to make it feel that way you need to be willing to change and update your profile.

Action items:

1) Make a note in your calendar to update your profile a month from now. It will help you remain active on the site, and stay current in people's search results.

2) How active are you on the site? The more you engage with the community, the more people will know you and notice you. Post on the forum. Answer a few polls.
