Facebook:I think that facebook it is a really useful social media. Since I am really far away from home, Facebook helps me to stay in touch with my friends and my family. I think it’s very important that I can select the people who I want to show the post. I use facebook a lot because I have a lot of friends from all around the world and it’s a nice way to know where they are going and what they’re doing, how they’re growing…
I use this social media for school and I think it’s the nicest thing ever because you can keep all your homework in just a website and see if you forgot something or if you’re not at school you can still know what they are doing in class or if there are new assignments. The only thing is that you still need an explanation on some of the assignments since they are sometimes long and summarized.
I had to create a LinkedIn account for school but I never use it. I don’t think it’s useful, maybe it can help you to remember all the things that you have done in your life and awards.
I made a Youtube account because before coming to Alaska I thought it would have been cool to keep a video blog but since uploading video was a really slow process and if your video is longer than 15 minutes you can’t upload it. So I don’t use it often, but it’s definitely useful.
I just got a twitter account and I don’t really like it since it’s full of random posts. I personally think that facebook is way more useful because the pictures are less random and less modified. People think a little bit more about what they post.
Online I just talk to people that I know. Every social media can be either useful or dangerous and it depends on how you manage it. I am the same person even if sometimes it’s easier to fake emotions.
I think I manage my online life pretty good.
The first resume was a traditional one where we could collect all the information about us and our life. As first step, the traditional resume was important in order to have a clear idea of what our skills, experiences and goals are. It was fun to list all the achievements and goals even though it was hard to remember every single one of them.
The visual resume is the one that would make a employee shine. It is fun to look at, fun to make and fun to share! It is jut a modern way of presenting yourself and show to your future boss what you are capable of.
Then we created a LinkedIn profile that we could share with other people that we know and don’t know and see how we are better than others or what we could improve about our resumes.
This is my traditional resume:
