Everyone knows what a brand is. Nike, Pepsi, Disney, Apple. It’s a buzzword thrown around a lot in career and job search conversations. Why should you care? Your potential employers are googling you and making decisions with the content they receive before you sit in the interview chair. You have the ability to manage your reputation both online and offline. Come to this workshop prepared to engage in individual and small group exercises to help you develop a 5 word personal brand. We will also cover ways to start establishing your brand online.
