Honestly, I have an online profile but I think it needs to be supported more! I don't have plenty time to work on it, because I'm a CS Student, and I'm always busy, studying, working on assignments/projects, coding and again and again. Hopefully, I can find time to have some extra courses related to my major. Since these courses are so important nowadays. After the pandemic, so many roles and jobs were changed, and the way of employing changed too, so when you have these certificates from these courses this will give you a strong online profile. It can be equal to other's experience. It show the employer that you're also working on yourself, and developing more and more.

Also, speaking a second language must be a plus.
