If you’re looking to increase your professional online presence, create an about.me page. About.me is a free tool where users can create a profile that pulls their contact information, bio, and interest.

Some features include:

  • Customization – You can create a page entirely to your liking. You can choose your own background photo, font, color, and even a custom web address to reflect your name. (about.me/john.smith)
  • Contact Information – An about.me page makes it easy for recruiters to get all the information they need to contact you. You can connect professional social media pages, email, and your phone number.
  •  Tags – Under your account settings, you can create specific tags that reflect your industry, job, and interest. (Marketing, recruiting services, design) These tags can help your profile reach more industries and people.

Creating an about.me page is easy, free, and will help you stand out from your competition. Have you created an about.me page? Comment your about.me address below. We’d love to see some examples!
