Know Your Goals
Your story is what led you to pursue your passion. What is your “Ah ha” moment when it all clicked? Be clear about what motivated you toward your goal.
Determine Your Value
You have a lot to offer, and it is important to match your skills with your position. What makes you unique? What experience do you have already? These questions are important to consider when marketing yourself.
Have a Plan
Create a plan. Know that this plan will adjust, and may change completely depending on your experiences. Having a plan gives you focus. It is attractive to employers to see that you have an idea about what you want to do, and that you can communicate the reasons.
Develop Your Branding Statement
Your branding statement communicates your brand to others in the workplace. It is your statement of purpose in an abbreviated form. Practice your statement often to ensure that it sounds natural.
