Here Is What You Missed

2019 December Career Management: "Cracking the 21st Century Job Market" Presented by: Lanning Levine

December 5

 

The key message was to build your brand to differentiate yourself, especially your thirty second commercial and your networking profile. 

 

All verbal and non-verbal communication must be crisp, concise, and comprehensive – avoid communicating too much information.

 

It is important to consistently communicate your brand, which includes your thirty second commercial, linked in profile, networking profile, and resume as well as how you tell your story in telephone and in-person interviews. 

 

Avoid basic mistakes such as not spell checking and grammar checking your documents.

 

Business cards should contain info about your brand – consider an appropriate icon – maximum three points.

 

How will people remember you based on your business card? Recommend you state what differentiates you on the reverse side of the business card – what you have done – what is important to your audience?

 

Resumes should be customized for each opportunity, which includes key words that applicant tracking systems or ATS expect to find when a company is searching for the ideal candidate.  If your resume does not convey the same language as the company then you will probably be screened out.  Remember that your resume is an example of your writing skills – good or bad. 

 

Does your resume tell your story in the context of what the hiring company needs help solving? – it is not about you! 

 

How do you get your audience to focus on you not your competition?

 

Networking profile is not your resume.  It is intended to get your audience to want to learn more about you.

Should only be shared during 1 on 1 meetings when the person asks for it.
