Professional Work Portfolio vs Linkedin
Why do you need a Work Portfolio when there is Linkedin ?
Linkedin and personal website both have their own perks but they serve two completely different purposes in your career. Although Linkedin is a great tool for making connections and professional networking; it almost falls short when it comes to presenting your skills and demonstrating your capabilities.
According to Charles Pooley from Work it daily, social media has become an indispensable tool for your career. It is a mistake, however to think that it is giving you all the exposure you need. According to recent studies, 26% percent of companies and staggering of 59% of companies worldwide block or restrict access to social media sites on computers in their network.
Your Professional Work is at the Mercy of Adds on your Profile
In the area of social media, all websites and platforms are cluttered with adds for different products, and you will never have a control over what type adds you like to see on your profile and good luck if you want stop it. I am aware of the add blocks and plugins that will stop showing adds on YOUR browser but do you guarantee this experience for your future employer, or partner that is visiting your website now. The truth is that the your are at the mercy of Linkedin when it run adds on your profile and all you can do is to pray that it give put on a good show for your visitors. If visitors can’t find what they are looking for on your profile; they will move to the next one and there would be a missed opportunity for you. At the end, what matters is not only the number of visits you get on your profile, but also the duration of the visits. It is estimated that average visits to personal websites are around three times more than those on social media.
