One thing that social media networks, access to the Internet and mobile technology offers us is the option to be seen.
While careless digital trails can shoot jobseekers in the foot later on in life, you can use the Web to connect with those that offer advice, tips and job opportunities. Staying current on Twitter and Facebook can alert you to job postings, participating in online discussions can get you noticed, and accessing resources can improve your skills and attractiveness as an employee.

Free courses on Coursera and edX can improve your knowledge in a field, and creating a personal website can give you an edge over your competition.
