Social media arsenal, unleash your personal brand
Have you ever wondered why some people seem to be able to get a job all the time, in any economy?
Why do some people promote faster in your company or how do people become "superstars"?
Many people would call it luck, however, I know of many people which not much exceptional ability, seem to be able to find jobs all the time, even in a recession. I would not call this luck, but rather, lots of preparation and personal branding.
Instead of feeling bad when you lose your job, and lose self esteem and not get out there to meet people, you need to wake up and seize the opportunities available. You may have great experiences and skills, but may not have opportunities for people to discover them. Today, many people are leveraging on the Internet to help them for career advancement, get more opportunities for people to discover their talent, skills and passions. Can you share your passions and talents, can your skills be discovered?
People tend to stay on a job or position for an average of 4.1 years, and with today's dynamic economy, only your personal brand is a constant. How do I learn the latest skills? How can I make sure I have marketable skills? How can my skills be always in demand? How do I find a job before it is open in the market?
These questions and many more can be answered by your network, when you start building it. It is not true that only sales people need to have a big network, as know more people increases visibility, and visibility creates opportunity.
Your action is in your hands, but you can learn more at this personal branding workshop on 21 Jan 2011 (Fri). This is a lifetime opportunity, and people of all ages and career level can benefit from learning the proper ways to be a superstar in your job to springboard that career!
