Your personal brand is what sets you apart from others that do what you do. It makes you more visible, hirable, and likable than others with similar qualifications. According to career experts, if you’re in the running for a new job or business opportunity, you will be Googled and what Google finds is your online digital personal brand. This presentation focuses on how to create a consistent, professional, attractive, and authentic personal brand message on LinkedIn and the strategies to elevate your digital personal brand for your career and entrepreneurship.
