The concept of having a digital envelope, in my opinion, is a very useful tool. Having the ability to have all of your important documents at your fingertips daily is extremely convenient not only in a work setting, but in your day to day life. I never really thought that a digital envelope could have as huge of an impact on my life as it can, until I read Audrey Watters electronic article titled “Claim Your Domain and Own Your Online Presence”. After reading this article I truly am convinced by the impact that the digital envelope can have on my post collegiate life. I can use a hypothetical situation to illustrate the usefulness of having a digital envelope. Say I just complete my junior year of college and I’m working on finding and completing internships. While doing so I bump into someone who is head of employment at a local newspaper company in my hometown. After talking to the employer and expressing my interest in writing for the newspaper, he asks to see samples of my writing. Since I have that digital envelope at hand I am prepared to share all of my samples that I feel are my strongest with the employer. If he likes what he sees he could not only offer me an internship for the newspaper company, but he also could offer me a job opportunity right out of college. Then I would be set up not only for the summer, but for life after college. Now I’m not saying that the digital envelope is going to guarantee you a job right out of school, but you can see that the digital envelope is a very useful tool to have at your fingertips because of the opportunities it can create for your career. I strongly encourage people to start creating digital envelopes and fill them with all the information you feel is important, because you never know when that next big break may come your way, so you should always be prepared for it.
