Creating a personal brand can be a challenge and one of the easiest ways to get lost in the process is to not know where to start.
When we talk about "personal branding" we are referring to establishing and promoting what you stand for. Your personal brand is the unique combination of skills and experiences that make you you. Effective personal branding will differentiate you from other professionals in your field.
Regardless of your age or professional stage; "more than half of the employers won't hire potential candidates without some sort of online presence today."
The easiest way to promote yourself as a job seeker and to stand out from the crowd is by building an online "introductory" video about yourself.
Here are some tips to help you build the right content as a job seeker:
Start of with your name
Introduce your education (name of institute, degree acquired, year of graduation)
Talk about the type of career opportunities you are open to e.g. I am looking for a career in marketing within the healthcare sector.....
Talk about your passion and your career choice e.g. I am passionate about influencing consumer decisions and marketing plays a huge role in creating perceptions.....
That's it! This is the simplest way of taking your firsts steps in building a personal / professional brand.
Once your video is ready you can Sign-Up or Sign-In and add the URL to your profile. If you want us to promote you* through our social media channels, send us your video using this online form.
