If you’re trying to find a job in today’s job market take time to Google yourself! This advice was given on CNN Monday morning after an NFL referee found himself set to ref. a New Orleans Saints game when whoops! There were New Orleans Saints photos all over his Facebook page. (Wonder which way the close calls would have gone in that game?) CNN Anchorwoman Christine Romans talks about someone who lost out on a $200,000 per year job because he wasn’t aware of his personal brand. Don’t get caught losing out on great employment opportunities because you’re not aware of your personal brand!
Coincidentally, this is the *exact* advice Maria Peagler of SocialMediaOnlineClasses.com and I recommended to our Personal Branding webinar listeners during two live sessions last week. The action item, “Google Yourself” is one of 15 bricks in a pyramid of action steps we created with advice on polishing personal brands. You can still watch our free personal branding webinar here. You can also join those who’ve tried and loved our personal branding toolkit that Maria and I have created. Just Monday I used one of the tools in the tool kit in a brainstorming session with a client and he loved it! Follow our easy steps to personal branding success so you don’t miss out on a $200,000 job opportunity!
