You’re Incredible! Does the world know it? Do you know it? Do you believe it?
Any form of career communication should reflect the very best YOU. Most professionals don’t know much about how to manage their career, let alone manage how they communicate about it. They don’t realize how important it is to take stock of their achievements and successes, keep up with technology, promote themselves, and at least be aware of the changing world of recruitment and job search. Heck, people still think a resume should be like an obituary – what and when.
That’s where I come in. I’m a high energy and client-focused career management strategist, job coach/mentor, blogger, teacher, and author. As a strategist, I specialize in crafting your unique career story— whether the format is a resume, cover letter, personal brand statement, LinkedIn profile, career biography, interview talking points, or more.
I’d like to offer you a little tip: please take your first step toward good career management by answering the following questions:
- What are your superpowers?
- What 3 achievements have you done to advance your career this year?
- What makes you unique?
- How would people describe you?
- What value do you add to your organization?
Beginning the discipline of thinking about yourself in this way is the first step in knowing your value as you move forward in your career.
