[DARE #7] Get Unstuck – Clean Up Your Online Brand Presence
Last week I took the plunge and enrolled in a one-day course.
While the idea sounds simple, it takes a great deal of orchestration to pull off such a task when you have little children.
But I did it and truthfully it was fun.
I attended a course taught by Carolyn Herfurth, a business and sales coach, focused on creating a new coaching program.
My focus was on creating an interview preparation service that would help my most accomplished clients – the ones who used to be the interviewERS regain that sense of control – now as interviewEES during any interview.
Wait for the launch in 2015 because it’s going to be an amazing experience – intense, yes… but worth it.
Now, why did I challenge YOU to take a course last week?
While there are many job opportunities that call for qualifications that you may not currently have, the best way to push forward and secure those “reach” roles eventually IS BY DOING SOMETHING about acquiring those skills — now.
So, what’s on tap for this Sunday?
Every recruiter that I have ever worked with has told me that they google their candidates prior to sending them off to interviews.
I want you to be proactive.
Dare #7: Clean up your online presence
- Google your first and last name
- Comb through the results
- Edit your online presence
Consider this framework while editing various links:
- Does the link align with the professional brand that I’d like to showcase?
- Does the link increase my credibility – professionally?
- Does the link demonstrate my skills and experiences favorably?
If you said NO to any of the questions above then make some edits.
