There is no technical skill required to use our service.
Each of our applications is built to be highly intuitive. Most of our software has been used by thousands and in some cases millions of users. We rarely get questions sent to our email help desk.
8. Why do I need a personal website if I am already on LinkedIn, Facebook and other social networking sites?
First and foremost, a personal website allows you ultimate control over your online identity. Secondly, a personal website allows for a much broader means to express who you are and what makes you unique. It serves as the centralized home of your Online Identity. (We recommend that job seekers point their social networking profiles back to their personal websites). Personal websites allow for a secure place to post your resume and for added security our Site in 60 application allows for password protecting any button on your site. We have had clients use it to protect resumes, references and work samples. You cannot protect content on most social networks and quite often it is sold to third parties. This is true of most resume uploading systems on job boards as well. For more reasons to utilize a personal website as part of your career management strategy, please read our blog.
9. Will Google or other search engines find my personal web site through your service?
Yes. Our sites are crawled by search engines so once you launch your site you will be building your personal SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Ultimately, ranking does take time and is driven by numerous factors such as content, keywords and links.
