Looking to jump-start your career? Start with your personal brand

We have had the privilege of leading and connecting with many great Information Technology Professionals on daily basis, literally thousands over the years, helping them advance their careers and achieve their dreams. Understanding and projecting “Who You Want To Be”, your personal brand is a great first step towards achieving the success you desire and getting your career on track.

There is tons of information and advice out there about how to craft a good resume, how to answer tough interview questions and how to navigate your way through the selection process to get to the final cut. So what next?

Understanding, articulating and projecting your “Personal Brand” provides a very solid foundation for being successful at anything you do. Your personal brand is those three or four attributes that guide you and are reflected throughout your life’s body of work.

“What’s Your Personal Brand?” For me it is all about Integrity, Value and Commitment.

Integrity – Integrity is the foundation of any successful individual or team. Integrity builds trust. Trust empowers people. Empowered people propel teams to new heights and in new directions.

Value – The importance, worth or usefulness of something. What do you bring to your team or organization. Are you an MVP when it comes serving the mission and achieving results?

Commitment – Are you dedicated to the cause…mission? Can we count on you? Will you own it and see it through?

Knowing and living your personal brand leads to a great deal of consistency and confidence even under the most extreme situations. As you look to progress to the next level you will be asked to give examples of how you performed under difficult scenarios. Living and then recanting those experiences with the perspective of your personal brand as the guiding light will portray a clear and concise view of who you are.

Start with a clear understanding of who you want to be. Go out and build your personal brand to achieve the success you desire!

Considering a career move? Start with the magic wand!

I have the privilege of talking to people on a daily basis about their careers and what they want to do next. Normally the conversation starts with a thumbnail sketch about a position we are recruiting or a brief skills profile of the person seeking career advice.

Next comes the question; “Magic Wand In Hand, the Sky’s the Limit, What Do You Want to Do Next”? Then comes a moment of silence…some stammering, followed by a few guarded attempts at an answer. This is a tough question that requires a lot of thought and soul searching. It normally takes asking at least three iterations of the question to start to “Peel the Onion” and begin the process of getting to a real answer.

We all have traits, skills, experience and a record of performing roles in a particular organization, industry or vertical market. These are great things that represent a many of the assets we bring to any team/organization. This career DNA will guide you down a predetermined path to what seems like the logical next steps, the next position. Are you on track, excited about the future, hyper motivated and a top performer?

I encourage you to take a step back and truly engage in some soul searching about what you really want to do. Magic wand…The sky is the limit…What do you want to do next?
