A recent Forbes article by Jacquelyn Smith titled, Why Every Job Seeker Should Have a Personal Website, And What It Should Include, inspired the Modern Themes team to deliver a professional WordPress theme to those who want to take advantage of their own personal website. Personal is the perfect way to present a professional online presence in order to land a dream job.
As the article states, “56% of all hiring managers are more impressed by a candidate’s personal website than any other personal branding tool—however, only 7% of job seekers actually have a personal website.” With Personal, we make it simple for the business professional looking to gain an advantage in the job market to create their own website.
After discussing the main points of the Forbes article, we pinpointed the details that are essential for a simple, professional website. The Personal WordPress theme combines biography, experience, background, contact and details sections in an elegant presentation that will give any job seeker a leg up on their competition. We developed the theme so that anyone can set up their website in under a half an hour, populate it with attractive images and solid content, and finish with a website that looks good on any device which hiring managers may be viewing it on.
“The bottom line is, it’s a great idea to create an online presence now that you own and maintain yourself so you’ll be ahead of the curve when everyone else is rushing to catch up with this trend.” With Personal and WordPress, job seekers can make sure that they don’t fall behind and lose out on a job they’ve waited and worked so hard for. It won’t get any easier to get ahead and stay ahead.
