Yesterday on The Savvy Intern we featured “10 Ways to Build a Perfect Personal Brand” from our friends at Levo League – an excellent tutorial on how to deliver a highly-effective brand to potential employers, customers and influencers.
And yet we heard from many young careerists: “I’m not even sure what my ‘brand’ is!” and “This is great, but I don’t know what I’m selling yet”…
How you present yourself on social media and the Interwebs – from creating a logo and oh-so-snazzy website to establishing a consistent image – is critically important, because it can mean the difference between getting that new job, acquiring a new customer and meeting that high-profile influencer… or not.
But other than creating a catch profile and getting that smiley-yet-professional headshot, how do you get started?
Everyone makes mistakes… let’s just hope we didn’t make these mistakes on our resume!
From spelling errors spellcheck can’t catch (“I held sex positions as a manager”) to irrelevant information (a picture of your dog? really?) and the wholly inappropriate (“I left because my affair with the boss broke down”), check out some very real resume mistakes as shown in this infograhic from Career Journey…
You are the verge of carving out a great career… and a great life. You are talented and focused; you know you want to make a difference.
And yet you have a hard time articulating who you are, what you’re good at, and what you stand for. There are many of us in this exact position right now… and with graduation season just ahead of us, many are wondering exactly how to position themselves in the marketplace.
That is why we love this simple infographic, which walks us through how to intentionally create a targeted personal brand…
We each have our own personality types… some of us are more adventurous and gregarious… while others are more low-key and appreciate structure.
So why not, as this infographic from Truity says, pick the best career based on how we think, our values, our preferred lifestyle and how we interact with others?
