Increase your credibility
Having your own website helps you establish a visible, credible online digital presence. It helps build a following if you blog, create awareness of a project or cause, or simply allows you to publish an online CV. This demonstrates to potential employees that you not only have great qualifications and experience, but you have the digital skills to tell the world your story and set yourself apart.
