      Your Personal Brand
      What is personal branding?
      Personal branding is the process of how we market ourselves to others. 
      Why is personal branding important?" 18% of working college graduates report that their employer expects some form of self-marketing online as part of their job." Digital Footprints, Pew Internet and American Life Project, December 2007.
      " 22% of managers screen their staff using social networks and 10% of admissions officers verify potential students using social networks." Careerbuilder.com & Kaplan
      " There are 1.5 million graduating college students for 2009 and employers are only hiring 1.3% more of them.  Differentiation through branding is imperative for success." Hartford Courant & WSJ 
      45% of companies conduct background checks on social networks (Careerbuilder 2009)
      10% of college admissions officers conduct background checks on social networks (Kaplan 2009)
      Hiring is down 7% for the 2010 graduating class (NACE, September 2009)
      63% of job-hunting college grads aren’t cleaning up their social network profiles (CollegeGrad.com, September 2009)
      71% of college admissions officers receive friend requests from applicants (Kaplan, September 2009)
      Employers receiving 49 graduate applications for each vacancy (Association of Graduate Recruiters, July 2009)
      59% of college grads send out 30 or more resumes as part of their job search (CollegeGrad.com, May 2009)
      Some Statistics about the new " Two Cultures" : the Culture of Knowledge and the Culture of Information
      83% of adult respondents thought that a twelve-year-old knew more about the Internet than their elected representative in Congress (Zogby 2006)
      48% of all children six and under have used a computer, and 30% have played video games (Rideout, Vandewater, and Wartella 2003)
      55% of youth 12-17 use social networking sites (Pew 2007)
      57% of teens who use the Internet could be considered media creators (Pew 2005), a statistic that may be an undercount, because it does not factor in newer digital forms of expression or those that produce artifacts other than written texts (Jenkins/MacArthur 2006)
      While engaged in an average of 2.7 simultaneous Internet Message conversations, 39% of surveyed college students were also writing academic essays while multitasking online (Baron 2006)
      71% of students at the University of Minnesota use Wikipedia; 28% cite it (Adams 2006)

      81% of faculty in the Humanities and Social Sciences get digital resources from Google-type searches (Harley 2006)
