It’s Black Friday and the world is hitting their favorite online or big box retailers trying to make a dent in their Christmas shopping list. While you’re shopping for everyone else, don’t forget to add you to the list. Today’s a great day to invest in yourself.
Thanks to the “great resignation,” many people have rethought how they want to spend their career. Reports show over 30 million people have quit their job in 2021. Maybe you’re one of them. Over the last 18 months, the uncertainty and upheaval in the world has caused many to rethink their priorities and it’s left companies scrambling to find workers. That means there are vacancies at all levels in the workplace. Now is the perfect time to investigate career changes and opportunities you might have been thinking about for some time.
Did you know January and February are typically great months to get hired?
Why? Retirements take place. People are finished with holidays and vacations. Budgets have reset. If you have your personal brand ready to go and your career marketing materials (resume and cover letter) ready to go, you have a great opportunity to land the position you’ve always wanted. What’s more, due to the changes in the economy, you can practically design your preferred job offer. Many companies are offering hiring bonuses, added retirement benefits, tuition assistance, student loan relief, remote opportunities and many other perks that have traditionally only been offered at the C-suite level.
So how can you stand out from all the other jobseekers?
The first step in getting the job offer of your dreams, is getting noticed. Typically, you have less than 10 seconds to catch a recruiter or hiring manager’s eye. If you aren’t getting called back for interviews for positions you know you are qualified, chances are your personal brand isn’t making the cut. The good news is you can build a personal brand designed with career success in mind in as little as 30 days.
What’s a personal brand?
Your brand is what someone thinks about you when you aren’t in the room. It’s what people think of when they are asked to describe you. Whether you’ve actively created a personal brand or not – you have one. So how do you make sure people perceive you in the right way? You have to actively create your brand. It should represent your goals, your achievements and where you’re headed in the future.
It’s important to be authentic in your brand. No one likes a fake. Make sure it shows your personality.
Remember, you aren’t trying to create a brand everyone wants. You’re trying to create your brand to attract the hiring manager at a company you want to work for. Just like some folks like Coke and others prefer Pepsi, each brand has its own tribe. You’ve got to build a brand that showcases the skills and strengths they are looking to find.
Once you’ve decided what your brand is going to be, the next step is making sure people see it.
How do I build my brand and get it seen by the right people?
