How to Get a Job Using WordPress

Hi, everyone.  Welcome to  In today’s tutorial, I’m going to show you
how to get a job using WordPress.

Now first and foremost, Internet presence and blogging is a necessity. Internet presence is also very important for success in the career world.  So my first suggestion would be to promote yourself by creating a WordPress blog because here, you can show your
expertise and knowledge in a certain field. You can show your computer and writing skills.  You can post your resume, and you can also
show people the kind of person you are.

So first, what you want to do is create an account at and click “Get Started Here.”  You can sign up for an account, register a
domain name, and start your site.  Next, what I would do is choose a theme that best represents the kind of person you are and what your blog is all about.  So you can also come to the free themes directory at  Type in “professional” in the keyword box, and you get a long list of all different professional themes you can put as the background of your blog.  This is also very important.

The next thing I would do is to get some resume templates.  For instance, you can also come to and type in “Plugin Directory.”  And the first thing you can install is the Contact Form 7.  This will allow people to contact you through your website. Plus, you can customize the form and the mail contacts to the way you want it to look and be.

The next plugin I suggest is LinkedIn Resume because here, what you can do is display your resume on your blog from your LinkedIn public page information.  And the third plugin I recommend is Resume Extended because here, after installing this plugin, you can create and maintain your resume from within WordPress.

So they are three very great plugins to have in order to display yourself in your resume.  Finally, give yourself a good professional image.  To do this, you can, one, maintain focus and purpose on your blog; two, make sure you emphasize your achievements, expertise, knowledge; three, make sure you have quality writing; four, include contact details, such as a contact form or a little biography; and finally, use images because, after all, images are also more interesting than words.
