episode 2260
of the number one podcast in apple
podcast for job search this is no bf job
search advice radio i'm jeff altman the
big game hunter and welcome
today's show is one where again i'm
talking about personal branding because
it's important and i know many of you
pooh-pooh it i'm not a brand i'm not
some detergent
you are a brand whether you like it or
not and it's important to pay attention
to shows like the ones i do around
branding and networking because those
are the ones that many of you are
reversed to and those are the ones you
really need hope you find this helpful
hope you give it an honest review
wherever you listen to the show and i
just want to remind you about my request
i made about going to jobscan's
linkedin page
and nominating me for
the best
i believe it's career coach on linkedin
just put my name into the hat i'd really
appreciate it so it's
is the name of the company and if you
scroll down a little bit on their page
you'll see the nominating
section there
and now we'll be back in just one moment
today's show is brought to you by fiverr
fiverr is a service where frankly you
can outsource a lot of tasks to someone
else and have them do it very
if you've ever watched or observed the
show notes not the show notes but the
transcriptions for this show
what you'll see is work that's been done
by someone i've hired on fiverr i've
also had
editing for my books done on fiverr i've
had a variety of different functions
done there and i've done it for years it
saves a lot of time it's very
inexpensive and i'll just simply say use
the link in the show notes it helps
support the advertiser and lets them
know that this show has meaning for you
and with that we'll be back in just one
moment you may have heard the term
branding in the context of job hunting
and you may have even started doing some
work on branding
you know creating a profile for yourself
on linkedin developing a reputation for
yourself you know in your profession
that's all fine and good and if you're
first learning about branding
congratulations you're going to be doing
work to help yourself not on this job
search but on your next one
because the fact is branding is not
something that you do overnight and
suddenly people go oh that's lady gaga
in front of us that's unbelievable
lady gaga and others like her spent
years becoming lady gaga they worked on
creating an image for themselves they
suddenly didn't just pop out on the
scene and become rock stars they paid
their dues they did their work they
developed the relationships and the acts
in order to become lady gaga for example
think in terms of not just this job
search but more importantly every job
search that you do in the future
even while you're doing great work and
that you're happy doing what you're
doing where you're doing it
you're going to be doing things to help
people learn about you to find out about
you to understand you and trust you and
thus want to hire you
rather than that absolute stranger that
they know nothing about
you see branding is the thing that gives
you the edge is the thing that says
that's the big game hunter
he knows what he's talking about that's
how good a brand that is
so i want you to think not in terms of
being me or lady gaga i want you to
think in terms of what you can do to
develop a reputation that others will
like and trust
not for this job search but for every
other one that you're involved with from
this point on
so that's today's show i hope you found
it helpful and if you did here are a few
things i can do to help you with your
job search beyond simply being your
first of all i've got a new book out
