Personal Branding for your Job Search


personal branding for a job search by Jeff Quandt and On-Q MarketingThe eBook is complete. Thanks to everyone that helped me on May 14th to finish writing the book.

The book is designed for anyone that is looking for work.  It covers what you need to personally brand yourself and stand out from the crowd.

 

Why You are a Brand

Let’s face it, finding a job take more than answering want ads, no matter where the ad appears be in a paper (how old fashioned) or online through a job board or company website. 

With 80% of the jobs (the hidden job market) never being advertised you need to doe more to find those open positions.

Networking

You need to network and present yourself as a viable candidate to anyone you meet that can help. They may not have a job, but they may know someone who does, so it is vital that you get out and network.

Stiff Competition

Using online job boards to apply for job will only prolong your hunt. There are literally hundreds of people applying for the same positions you are.  applying online only yields a 5% chance of landing a position.  Still sometimes that is all you can do ads you cannot network into a company, so just don’t spend all of your time on a low-yield tactic.

Separate Yourself from the crowd

In today’s highly competitive job market you need to separate yourself from all the other candidates. That takes work and sometimes a bit of money, but you can do a lot for FREE. This eBook can show you how.

Feedback

Let us know what you think and also if you have any other ideas that should be included in the comments.  The book will be updated in the future.
