A Digital Library
What ebooks do you recommend?
Do you have a list of books that you have read?
What is your "mind set" (what do you carry in your head?)
In addition to a list of books, why not write two or three sentences about each book to encourage others to read or at least look at the wiki summary of the book?
See the John Vornle Library to get an idea of what a useful "annotated bibliography" does to guide other readers.
This is my current digital library
Blogs, Newsletters and Magazines that I read often

List of Subscriptions
What does the potential employee read? What is in the head of that person? What does that applicant bring to our organization? Does that person know about Dan Pink's ideas? How about the "growth mindset" of Carol Dweck? If that applicant is subscribed to Dan Pink's blog, then yes!
What channels do you subscribe to?
Facebook Pages that I like
Are you a beta tester?
If you are a beta tester, using a service like BetaBound.com, you communicate to the world that "I serve" and "I'm curious." That's helpful for some employers to know.
Look at this profile that BetaBound asks:
What scenes from a YouTube channel can you recommend? What does your recommendation tell future employers about you?
For example, I can post these screenshots from a video and a future employer can think, "Hey, this guy Steve likes space. He takes time to look for patterns, such as the three peninsulas in the north of Greece, so that he knows that the next shot shows the island of Crete. Steve can see patterns."
|It was in a live shot. I'm not sure |
this video will still be there
