You know how important it is to have a cohesive personal brand these days. But having a personal brand is much more than just having a few words associated with you and your areas of expertise. You can’t afford not to maintain a strong online brand. Yes, having a great personal branding statement is essential, but if you don’t have a place to flaunt it online, what’s the point? So, why don’t you have a personal website then? What’s your excuse?

This post is part of the Professional Independence Project series. While Jordan Belfort made the sentence “Sell me this pen” quite famous, for young professionals today the real question is “Sell me yourself.” All those job interviews you had, all those cover letters you’ve written, the time you spent polishing your CV, and the number of networking events you attended have one single common aspect: They help you sell yourself better. It’s that simple, yet very powerful. Selling yourself is becoming the prime focus of young professional in an employment ecosystem that values not only applicant’s credentials, but also social...

Even for those of us who know we’re happier working independently, it’s alluring to contemplate rejoining the conventional workforce. Benefits, insurance, and the good old “steady paycheck” are certainly good reasons to go back on someone else’s payroll. But whenever I’m tempted to “get a job,” I’m reminded of what a former CEO once said to me about Hollywood: that it’s “full of highly-paid temps.” Add to that the fact that there really isn’t anything such as “job security” these days, I’d much rather be in the camp of hunting what I eat. 5 Lessons From A Successful ‘Business-Of-One’ I...

Have you ever had the experience of sending out your resume EVERYWHERE, and getting no results? No emails. No callbacks. No interviews. It sucks, doesn’t it? I had that experience a few years back… And then a profound realization changed everything for me. I realized that… You’ve Got To Make An Irresistible Offer And a boring, traditional resume just doesn’t do that. (Here’s a free resource that’ll help you out with this, by the way) See, employers and recruiters are used to seeing the same thing over and over: A plain-Jane resume and cover letter.

Even though a prospective employer may only have your resume, that’s not going to stop them from also researching to see what you have on LinkedIn. The fact is, if an employer is screening you, they are going to scour the Internet for information to make sure you are who you say you are on your resume. So, what are employers looking at when they compare your resume to your LinkedIn profile and other social network profiles? 1. Expertise. Anyone can write on their resume that they have over 10 years of experience in the field of XYZ, but does...

Samantha was fed up. Her job was frustrating and her supervisor was uninspiring. Then one day, a recruiter called with the job of her dreams. Ten minutes into the conversation, Samantha could see herself in a bigger office, making double her current salary, and working for the boss of her dreams. “I’m very interested!” she told the recruiter. And she began the process of interviewing for her dream job. Ten interviews and four months later, Samantha was certain this job was hers. She had bonded with the recruiter, who called her regularly and coached her through the long interview process. She had met with multiple...

b2ap3_thumbnail_Boomerang-Candidate.jpg
Over the past few decades, the employment landscape has changed dramatically. Few employees now spend their entire career with a company, advancing within the same organization. Instead, they change employers frequently and are constantly searching for a better position, often with a competitor. In fact, today’s average employee stays at each of his or her jobs for just 4.4 years. And this environment is a breeding ground for boomerang candidates. What exactly are boomerang candidates? They’re employees who leave one company for another job, only to eventually return to their former workplace. And boomerang candidates offer both benefits and challenges...
