Develop Your Personal Brand

Your ‘personal brand’ is really how you present yourself, your skills, your experience, and your career goals to others.

It's what sets you apart in a recruitment process.

A strong personal brand helps you to communicate your professional identity and aspirations effectively, and differentiate yourself in the competitive job market.

When it comes to defining your own personal brand, its useful to think about your experiences, your accomplishments, and your goals and find some common themes.

Develop Your Personal Brand

Keep your personal brand statement short, relevant and honest, and use simple language that an audience will understand.

A personal brand statement is how you tell an employer who you are and what you’ve got to offer.

For example, if you are an engineering student, your statement might be something like: “I have a passion for how things work. I love to find creative solutions to difficult problems and seeing positive results."

For law, it might be “I’m passionate about justice and I want to pursue a career where I can help people.”

For science, it might be something like: “From an early age, I’ve been fascinated by the world around us and have loved learning about the human anatomy and scientific experiments."
