Time-travelling back to a few years ago, I think about those who have taught me the skills that help overcome “imposter syndrome” and be myself on social media – key requirements in our new world of work. Again, there are so many people I can mention, but I cannot not mention Vanessa Raath! She has made me laugh so much and has pushed me into uncomfortable places, for which I am most grateful! I met her on Twitter and was instantly drawn to her energy and boldness. When she started her own business in training sourcing skills for recruiters, I immediately wanted to do all I could to encourage her exposure, but in the process she has taught me about boldly creating a personable virtual presence. I remember asking Vanessa to partner with me and train a corporate team on sourcing while I covered the interview side – and was horrified when she gathered us all together for a photo in the company’s reception area to post on LinkedIn. Up until that stage I had gained years of experience working with corporate teams and recruitment consultancies, but there was something about my internal wiring that did not open me to share what I was doing with others, let alone share in the public domain! And now I need to be mindful not to share too much! As a result of her example in this area, I have so enjoyed building a professional network and making wonderful friends through LinkedIn, which I have found to be an especial source of encouragement and joy during our pandemic and lockdown.
