At our Brand Yourself Workshop, our guest speaker Heidi Golledge gave us the inside scoop on how to brand yourself successfully to launch your career. Heidi Golledge is the co-founder and CEO of both CareerBliss and CyberCoders, and brought a very diverse set of experiences that she was able to share with our members. Heidi emphasized the importance of stepping out, and shooting for your dream. You should always set your expectations high and be willing to work hard enough to achieve them instead of taking the easy job that you don’t love. Even if you are desperate for a job, you should still be selective. Also, because of the nature of her career she talked about the importance of branding your resume to be special, because her company will look at over 1000 resumes for one position. Once you have created your individual brand, make sure to be strong to your brand and love your brand. You must be passionate about your brand, yourself, and jour job in order to be successful. One last major point Heidi discussed was the importance of having a professional Linkedin profile, Twitter, and Facebook. Whatever you present to the world is a representation of your brand, and you must not post anything that can jeopardize your brand. After Heidi gave her words of wisdom, members were also able to present to the group what words or phrases that represented their personal brand. Heidi Golledge gave priceless information to our members, and inspired them to go out and perfect their brand. Work hard, play hard, and brand yourselves AMAers.
