Building Your Personal Brand

Building your personal brand is just as important in preparing for jobs and internships as tailoring your resume and doing a practice interview.  Your personal brand is what you put out to the world – what you want to be known for, what goals you’re driven to accomplish, what makes you a unique job candidate. It’ll be how you market yourself to your future employer.  It’s your elevator pitch come to life.

Branding can be easy with the use of so many social media channels at your disposal, especially LinkedIn, but it’ll take some thought and planning to make sure your brand is on point. InternQueen.com’s blog on creating your personal brand can get you started. Need more advice? Make an appointment with the Center for Career Development for a Linkedn critique or discussion about your personal brand.
