Defining and refining your personal brand, and then how you implement it can be a huge factor in the jobs you land, how employers view you in interviews and how you fit into a workplace.
Why does personal brand matter?
A clear, consistent personal brand can assist you to:
How do you sell yourself when someone asks ‘tells me about yourself’ or ‘what do you do?’, the answer to these questions is so important and can create a lasting first impression. Refine a pitch that is 30 seconds long, and clearly crafts who you are, what you do, who you help and why you help them.
3. Build your network
They say you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Who you hang out with shapes you, and defines the perception people have of you. Spend time curating a network that you are proud of, can learn from and who you can help. Building a network early on can be beneficial when it comes to career growth and when you need assistance and advice.
A great way to define your personal brand is to gain a greater understanding of who you are and what you stand for. Spend time thinking about your values and beliefs and go from there.
