It’s the time of year when students finish class, commencement speakers share words of advice, and graduates proudly collect diplomas.
It’s also a great time to update the contact information on your about.me page, starting with educational info. Both recent and not so recent grads should make sure their educational details are up to date.
Including educational information is a great way to connect with current or former schoolmates or simply other alumni from your school. Add your high school or university information and see who else on about.me represents your alma mater. You may be surprised by who you’ll find!
about.me engineer, David Brock, has University of Texas at Austin on his page. By clicking on that school in his bio, anyone looking at his page can see others on about.me from his same university. In this way, others researching University of Texas at Austin student or alumni pages, are more likely to find David or others associated with the school.
So take some time to click on Edit Page (biography tab!) and update your missing education information. To have even more people see your page, add your most recent professional experience and your current location. Including more info will allow your page to be visible when someone is looking for people in your city, town, or line of work.
Once you’ve made updates, don’t forget to promote your page (via Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin) to let others know your updates. And if you have Gmail, be sure to add it as a beautiful signature to your emails. It’s easy!
