One of the main pieces of advice I have for people looking to accelerate their career is to start a personal website. I especially recommend starting a personal website to young and ambitious people who are just getting started.
Many pieces of advice around starting a personal website are incorrect. You don’t have to be a founder, a writer, or a brand to reap the rewards from having a personal website. You also don’t need to code your website yourself, or build some elaborate site with dozens of detailed pages. You just need to have a website that showcases your skills.
Great broad overview for why IndieWeb.
