    Host: What can I do online to help my search?

    Louise Kursmark: You can look for additional tools that will position you appropriately or allow you to get in front of your audience in a different way. You might produce a video resume for example, something like I am doing right now so that they can see and hear you and then send that as appropriate to employers. You might create an online web portfolio or a visual CV, some of these emerging new tools that are coming out that allow you to do more than just create a paper version of your resume. Look for opportunities to do that as appropriate, but make sure that you are always concentrating on the value that you bring, consistent with who you are and what makes you special and different and focused on the accomplishments of your career that employers are really going to care about, not just because it s cool, not just because you can.
