If you really want to stand out from the pack in a job search, consider creating a blog to give employers a behind-the-scenes look at your greatest professional achievements.

While a well-crafted résumé is a great place to list your projects and accomplishments, it doesn't afford you space to explain them in much detail. Joshua Lockhart at MakeUseOf suggests creating a dedicated blog that can fill in the gaps with first-person accounts of your professional highlights. For example, a video editor could write a blog post detailing her thought processes for each major video she produces.
In addition to giving employers a deeper understanding of your work habits and skills, this is also a great medium for giving your application a unique voice. Semi-casual writing, personal photos, and videos of yourself at work can go a long way towards humanising an otherwise generic and forgettable job application.
