Do yourself (and those recipients of your personal branding spam) a favor: take the time to determine what makes you unique, hireable and desirable. Also, take the time to discover the reasons why your job search isn’t going well.
Not sure how to begin? Do this…
Your online presence, as we all know by now, is incredibly important to your career. And within that presence, nothing shouts “Here’s me! This is who I am!” like your profile pic.
The trouble is… many profile pics on social media aren’t great. In fact, they actually hurt the personal brand rather than help. Today, you are going to make sure your profile picture is not only an asset to your professional brand but also an accurate reflection of your personality.
Everyone has one. Soon-to be graduates do. Recent grads do, too. So do workforce veterans. They all have a personal reputation or professional reputation, or both. The question is, how do you market this reputation so it resonates well with future employers?
How about becoming “flawsome”?
Think about how many times we are asked in either a professional or social setting, “What do you do?” or “Please introduce yourself to the group.”
Similar to writing a compelling bio, taking the time to craft an interesting, concise, reusable response to “What do you do?” or “Please introduce yourself to the group” is an excellent investment. If you can describe yourself in a way that is appealing to others, it will open the door to opportunities and further conversations and questions.
