In today’s fast-paced, job-hopping business world, your most valuable asset is your own personal brand. How you present yourself – from your resume to your social media properties to what you wear and how you talk – evokes emotions and creates impressions long before anyone actually “gets to know you.” For anyone interested in landing their dream job, having a successful career, making more money, increasing their visibility or being recognized as an expert in their field, having a compelling and consistent personal brand can mean the difference between success and failure.  To develop your brand, you’ll need the answers to the following questions.
