1:26 – For my Individual Vlog 🙂
Check it out below!
As you can see, we have enjoyed ourselves throughout the learning process on Living and working on the web!
And as mentioned in my Vlog, I’m more of a technical person by nature. I have never thought of the importance of having an online image.
Before this module, I didn’t know that I could actually get recruited online via social media!
Our online activities can potentially project a negative image on us depending on what we post. And this could lead to recruiters passing us over for that job we applied for.
Always Package yourself well.
Cleaning up my “mess” on my social media is something I clearly need to work on. Thus, setting my accounts to private for the time being would be a better choice. I wouldn’t want my recruiters to see my embarrassing photos!
Within this module, I have gained different aspects of social media.
It can be a strong tool for networking purposes… But it can also bring your reputation down.
What would recruiters think of you and your “messed” up social media?
My personal viewpoint is that, having multiple online identities would provide one with obscurity. This is why I created a second account for my Twitter during this module!

I’ve also followed many different Informative Sites’ twitter accounts. This is a way of broadening my network.

In the future, I’ll keep my Twitter constantly updated with informative retweets and also informations that I might find useful online, so as to keep my followers updated as well!
Coming from an Engineering background, blogging is a new experience for me.
I learnt that a blog is a platform that can actually help you express yourself and your thoughts. You can even share information with people outside your country and receive invaluable feedbacks.
Blogging can also be part of our Online Professional Profile as mentioned in Topic 3 which can also be used for our CVs.
Thus, I would continue blogging after this module ends. Recruiters might be looking at this field. Who knows?
Do you remember about Social Recruitment on Topic 3?
I finally created my very own profile! I have never thought that it would help me enhance my online presence.
As a student, I do know that I still have a long way to attain a rich professional profile.
In the future as I gain more work experiences, I will keep my LinkedIn account updated and increase my connections.
My Takeaways from #MANG2049
I feel that whatever we have learnt from this module will continue with us and the learning never stops! It is true that you can have the freedom of speech online.
However, social media users must be prudent in whatever they post.
Always remember how influential social media can be.
As a marketer, you should be open with the idea of showcasing yourself online. You should embrace it. Make use of it! And let it do wonders for you. 😉
Never give up,
Never stop learning.
