it help finding a job?

Ok, let’s start!
What do you want to take out of this
workshop?
Personal branding is all about how we
market ourselves to others.
Let’s take a deeper look at the concept of
branding.
Branding is not about logos.
Brand is a collection of experiences and
perceptions made by consumers.
Hey! But these are company brands, not
people.

Branding is not about being worldwide
famous.

Your personal brand is all about who you
are, what you do and how you
communicate it
REMEMBER: If you’re not branding
yourself, others will be doing it for you.
Personal branding is all about finding
yourself. It’s not about finding a job.
Everyone can find a job. Not everyone
can find what they’re really passionate
about.
Ok, let’s do an exercise
If you were to be an animal, which animal
would you be and why?
If you were to be a product, which
product would you be and why?
If you could live someone’s else life for a
single day, whom would you choose?
Sorry, time’s running out, so we will have to
stop with the questions now. But point being:
Get to know yourself. And know...
Ok, once I find what I am really
passionate about, what I would love to
do in life and what can be my biggest
