  • Today’s job search is much different from what it used to be even as little as 5 years ago. Success comes from understanding and accepting that fact.

  • Marketing can be broken down into 4 principles, known as the Four P’s of Marketing. Familiarity with these 4 principles and how they relate to you enable you to effectively market yourself based on your strengths and needs.
  • Personal branding is the backbone of your marketing. Everything in your personal brand must agree.
  • HANDOUT: Core Values Exercise (about 15 minutes???)
  • Your vision is what motivates you. Ultimately, you want to spend your life doing something you believe in. Come to terms with what really motivates you.
  • Articulate your vision and values in a mission statement.

But your professional summary or profile can be extracted from your mission statement, as can your headline (used on your LinkedIn profile).
  • This graphic links to another presentation on Prezi.com on making a personal marketing plan.
  • Where do you want to go with your career? Here are some factors to keep in mind when weighing this decision.
  • Half of making a good marketing plan is knowing what you have and want; the other half is knowing the same of the employer(s).
