Programme Description

The aim of the course is to establish a digital footprint which offers many advantages when correctly built.
Here are a few:
• You can build a positive online presence that showcases your skills,
experience and interests. Moreover, with some online sites, you can control the information about you that is publicly available.
• An online profile that includes your CV, for instance on a professional networking site such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Medium, can expand your range of contacts.
• Professional networking sites can give you access to potential employers, whose digital footprint you can also research.
• You can update your profile in a cost and time-effective way, so make sure to do so regularly.
• Clients, future employers, current employers, employees and many more stakeholders in your ecosystem actively look at your digital footprint to get a better understanding of you and your standing in your profession.
