YOUR personal brand shows employers what you have to offer and can expect from you. Personal branding isn’t just for senior executives – it’s for people at all stages of their career. If you’re ready to jump into the world of work or climb the ladder, make sure you are well prepared.
Whilst first impressions count, the promise of professionalism and expertise lingers within your online profiles too. It’s important to present yourself well at an interview and have a spell-checked CV, BUT your online profile on sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter are just as important for communicating what you’re all about.
Your online persona makes a big impact on your chances of bagging that dream job – last year, over 60% of employers turned to social media to research applicants. With this in mind, make sure that your online presence is something that can help you achieve your goals. Your personal brand represents you and makes all the difference. Employers will be looking for useful information.
Make the right statement, on and off line – it’s incredibly important these days. Next time you are online, do a quick check of things you’ve posted or commented against, including photos others may have tagged you in. You should also want to join career-focused LinkedIn groups, or provide information that could attract employers and show you are serious about what you do. Also – make sure you’ve got a great head shot!
