One major pro to these two online tools is that you can access the sites at any point to edit or add information as needed. You are able to keep an up to date record of your professional life. Another pro is that you are able to connect with people internationally about potential professional changes from the comforts of your home. You are able to network and connect with many people in order to further your career.
Although there are many pros to using a personal website and LinkedIn, there are also cons that come along side. One major con is that you can spend hours online tweaking and perfecting your sites and not making the connections and receiving the results that you wanted. One can become easily distracted by everything that you can add to the sites to make yourself appear the way you want to and not make those connects as a result. Another con is that you are simply just another person behind a screen. What makes people stand out in a crowd full of others that have the same qualifications is their personality. As great as these sites are at connecting and networking, nothing is as good as face-to-face contact and communication.
