As a student at Tulane University, nothing about me screamed traditional college student.
Though I had a range of experiences during my undergraduate years, they weren’t all linear. Anything that sparked an interest in me, I explored. This included blogging, organizing food trucks, working at music festivals, assisting event marketing teams and an array of other odd jobs.
When I began my job search, I knew that I wanted to share all of my unique experiences with a potential employer. However, I just didn’t know how. The one thing I did know was that I had to make it easy, appropriate, and creative in order to get their attention.
With my about.me page, I was able to make my experiences come to life. It served as the home for everything Zoë. This included my résumé, Instagrams from my travels, recent tweets, and even articles I’d written about the latest runway collections. Without about.me, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to represent myself in the right light to possible employers. Here are three ways about.me allowed me to stand out in the crowd during my job search.
