Branding Yourself

November 1st, 2016

When you’re developing your career, it’s very important to brand yourself. Not only can branding yourself help you get more job offers, but it can also lead to increased visibility in terms of building connections and forging different career moves. Here are some tips about how you can brand yourself:

Have a Niche

The more specific your skill sets or interests are, the harder it will be for people to forget you. Your niche can be anything, really; maybe you have a knack for optimizing social media for auto body shops or maybe you are known for being able to troubleshoot DSLRs. Whatever your niche is, own it – that’s what people will remember you for when they’re hiring.

Keep Your Social Media Profiles Consistent

Social media is everything, so you need to ensure your profiles are painting a consistent image. If your brand is a responsible entrepreneur who wakes up early every morning to do yoga, your social media profiles better not have photos of you staying up late partying with your friends. If you can keep everything consistent, you will have a much better shot at branding yourself.

Take Jobs in the Same Field.

Another great way to brand yourself professionally is to take jobs in the same field. For example, if you’re known for being a brilliant marketer, it might be kind of confusing to people if you suddenly started working as an event planner. Taking jobs in the same field will allow people to more successfully categorize you so when they need someone in that field, they think of you first.
