I think that my interpersonal skills combined with my ability to write and teach would make me an effective candidate for this job.

A way that I would use a website to position myself for a job is to accessibly make it represent me. I would want to have the website be easy to understand, clear, and easily navigable. I would want to use fonts and colors that aren’t too harsh and are easy to read. I would want to spend a good amount of time writing about my qualifications, experiences, and specialties because I know that that is very important when someone is considering who they want to hire. I would choose appropriate and professional photos that represent me accurately and show my personality. I think that having all of these things on a website would position me best as a promising candidate.
