moment
when you see
a
graphic
of an apple
what company do you think of
when you buy a box of detergent
have you ever looked at the list of
ingredients to determine whether which
group of chemicals is actually going to
make your wash whiter
i doubt it
we're all influenced by brands
and when i'm going to speak to you about
branding branding isn't going to be
about this job search but it's going to
be about the rest of your career both in
terms of how you're seeing it work and
how you're going to be seen at the job
market because
for you to develop a brand now is going
to be
you know it's just not going to be
effective because you won't have time to
have
created a space in people's minds to
accept it
but it is so important for you while
you're in this job search to begin the
process of branding to identify for
yourself what you want to be known for
what you want to do
to help others or influence others and
how you want to be perceived as a
professional
so for example you know i use the you
know the phrase the big game hunter and
it creates an impression in your mind
about me as a recruiter and i'm sure
there are other people who've developed
comparable things i also have a tagline
that says helping the world find work
helping companies hire talent
that basically defines what i do
because whether it's in my work as a
headhunter or in
my podcast my videos all the other
things that's what i'm trying to do help
the world find work help companies hire
talent
what can you be known for and what do
you want to be known for what matters to
your audience and what can you be doing
to communicate with them this is not a
one minute conversation you have with
yourself this is something to spend time
with and start thinking about in a very
serious way because otherwise you're
just another
you know
you know stalk of corn out in the field
waiting to be
seen notice plucked and you know the
most people all that corn kind of looks
alike
but if you can do something to stand out
from the pack you have gone a long way
to influencing how your career is shaped
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
coach

called the right answers to tough
interview questions it is like a
cookbook with answers to
tons of interview questions that you're
going to be asked on interviews
and if you pair it up with my other new
book the ultimate job interview

terrific pair of books to help you with
interviewing
