MARKETING. Companies marketing or branding their products is exactly how job seekers should market themselves.

To build your personal brand, follow these five steps:

  • Find your niche. Who’s your audience? How will you captivate them? Once you choose your target audience, you can select your content.
  • Choose your messengers. Whether it’s a blog, Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook, update regularly. Multiple messengers recommended.
  • Be consistent. Your audience knows what to expect from you, and that’s what keeps bringing them back. Don’t get distracted with irrelevant material.
  • Network. Find similar brands and connect.
  • Evaluate. Social media is constantly changing, and your brand has to adapt to these changes. Be flexible and continue to reevaluate your online presence.
