how mike roberts can help
“It goes without saying that building a great reputation, maintaining a portfolio, and participating in a community of professionals are the cornerstones of career success.
I’ve always had a love hate relationship with social media – in the sense that if I put my energy in to something, what is it that I’m working towards and getting out?
I spend a good amount of time on LinkedIn each week – creating content and highlighting mine and other’s achievements that will get me seen, noticed, and remembered – for all the RIGHT reasons!
I love sharing this learnt knowledge and helping the next generation to get their profile looking professional with tips and advice which are easy to digest.

My goal is to highlight the values of professional social networking to youngsters so that they can catapult themselves into their dream jobs and understand the power of innovation in this incredible new digital business world without the restrictions that many of my generation had.
It is important to remember that any content that is put onto social platforms or the internet e.g. LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter etc. can and probably will be viewed by potential employers when they consider someone for a role.
It is always worth taking the time to clean-up your online presence when trying to land your dream job, plus, ensure that recent posts are relevant to chosen careers or hobbies (which may also be mentioned on CV’s).
Consider any online presence as part of your CV.”
