Back in August I talked about purchasing a website with my name (http://www.jon-fletcher.com/) and using it for self promotion in my job hunt when I return from my deployment. I am happy to announce that it worked great and was a HUGE help in me being able to secure a job. The biggest thing was that it allowed me to point potential employers to my resume and cover letter quickly and easily. I could just tell them to "Check out my website at..." and there would be all of my information. If you look at my website now, it is a little bit under construction/revision, but you get the basic idea. I chose to include my biography, interests, cover letter, resume, and contact information. That seemed to be just enough, keeping the website short, sweet, and streamlined.
