We're now living in a digital age and online presence is the name of the game! Whether you're making an application for a job or just updating your CV, it's all done online now.
So, now, its becoming increasingly important to establish a positive internet presence, with emphasis on positive.
But what does that really mean?
Well, employers now look at your online presence, that is, your social media profiles, any blogs you've written or an online portfolio.

So you've got to make sure you've got a really positive online presence. It will make you stand out and give you an edge over your competitors. Don't let any negative images or things in your online profile bring you down. Tidy up your social media profiles, maintain a little professionalism and you're all set to get employed!
As a bonus; blogs, online portfolios, websites, podcasts or videos you've made/shared and even a really good LinkedIn profile can really make you stand out with a great online profile! It's never to early to start and it shows you've got the initiative and enterprising mind employers look for!

Are you worried you haven't got any major online profiles?
Well, we're here to help!
University of Birmingham's very own B-Enterprising is offering you an opportunity to build up your online presence. Participate in our 'B-Enterprising Photo Competition'  and send in pictures where you individually or your team are being enterprising and a short caption of about a 100 words.

Why are we doing this? So employers can see how enterprising and creative you are.....And that you can make a difference.

This competition will be run from the end of this term (Autumn term), all through Christmas till the 31st of January. You need to send in photos that show you doing an enterprising activity, either as an individual or with your team. Make sure to point out who you are in the photo. Societies are welcome to participate as well.

 You can send photos to our Facebook or Twitter as a private message or use #IMENTERPRISING. The photos must obviously include you individually or your team!

The winning photo would be one that manages to capture what it really means to be enterprising! And the prize is....... £50 Love to Shop vouchers! The winner will be on the B-Enterprising blog as well! Talk about hitting two birds with one stone!

Its not just the winners though. If your story is brilliantly inspirational and enterprising, your story will be on the B-Enterprising blog and voila! You've got a really positive online presence!

So get cracking! Get out there, B Enterprising, capture those moments and send them to us! Your online presence is just around the corner!
