Tell me about yourself. A simple, yet loaded question that gets most of our palms sweating and pulse racing to answer in interviews… Sounding all too familiar?
Personal branding is a buzzword often tossed around in professional conversations these days. Social media and blogging have forever altered the way we interact, network, and share knowledge. No longer is it just companies seen as brands, but people too.
PERSONAL BRANDING IS THE NEW BLACK
Time to get real here for a second. They aren’t just handing out jobs like hotcakes these days.
The vast majority of college students are stuck without full-time jobs upon graduation when over 200 people are applying for each opening and only 2% actually landing an interview*.
