Jobseeker Tip of the Month
Building your personal brand.
No matter who we are or where we come from, what experience, training or background we’ve had, we all project an individual persona, or brand.
What’s yours like? Is it the kind of ‘brand’ that will attract a potential employer?
Think about building, or enhancing, your unique personal brand. You could attract potential employers to you rather than reaching out to them. You can do this through social media, a blog or website, the way you form and put together your covering letters (they should always be considered separately for your audience)and your resume as well.
Do your applications, cover letters, CV etc. truly reflect you and your personality? How do you present yourself on social media? Do you come across professionally and consistently?
Check the Workskills Fact Sheets for more ideas and information to help you get a competitive edge in your job search.
