Have you even sat down and Googled yourself just to see what would come up? Have you ever thought about what your online presence is? Take a look at our social media skills page to read up on how to Create a better online you. Your future self (and employers) will thank you for it!
So much of our lives, including studying, can and is being done online. We have universities course groups on Facebook, industry professionals to meet and follow on Twitter, Instgram and Flickr, Google+ community pages and blogs to follow and gain insight on particular topics. This is all great, however, it is worth thinking about the darker side of online technology. People are more available but also more hidden at the same time. How do you really know who you are talking to?
So make sure you are getting the best out of your online presence and use it wisely. Create a linked in profile so that professionals within your industry can see your achievements. Ask questions to your tutor if they have created a Facebook group for your class. You can also speak directly to QUT Library staff online too through our Chat to a Librarian service. So even if you can’t get in to uni study help is still available!
