Step Up to Stand Out – A Primer on Personal Branding

In today’s marketplace, it’s tough to stand out – even among Computer Science and Engineering graduate students.  A Ph.D. won’t guarantee that you’ll land the job that you’ve dreamed of, or that you’ll even be granted an interview.  There are a lot of qualified people out there.  The secret to standing out is to impress hiring managers with the unique you – in person, in your documentation, and in your online personality.  Your personal brand matters.  It’s your reputation.  Your business card.  It’s what you’re known for and what professional reputation proceeds you.  It’s about demonstrating WHO you are and WHAT you do and HOW you do it.  Delivering your brand clearly and consistently across different media platforms will create a memorable impression in the minds of those you interact with – an impression that can open the door to professional opportunities.
