Your Picture - Like I've said before, it could just make you feel more real to employer. Since they can put a face to name, they might remember you more then someone who just has a resume.
Your Voice - Of course, this isn't one of those die hard rules. I enjoy option of listening to someone's greeting/intro, but I know some aren't comfortable recording their own voices. I do, however, think this is yet another great way to have employer see you as a real person. Not only can they see your picture, along with your skills and experience, but they could also hear your voice. I use audio on my websites/blogs and newsletters. I find them a great way to communicate and seem more real to my readers
Your Resume - This has all necessary information that employer will need. Please be sure to spell check your resume, along with rest of website. I would also recommend you having resume done professionally. Think of it as investing into yourself and your future. I've also been told that you can write off a resume on taxes, so keep that in mind.
Your Portfolio - If you have one and you're looking for work online, only place to showcase your portfolio is online. It would be a perfect addition to your website. Your portfolio can be one of two things: it can either be work you've done, or it can be samples of work you can do. Just have fun with it, and be creative.
These are just some of my own suggestions. There are many other things you can do, and I'm sure you will come up with some great ideas for your own personal website.
The next article in series I'm gong to talk about how you can get your website out there in front of potential employers. After all, you can build an amazing website, but if you don't know how to get it out there and seen, there's really no point to it.
