Recently, Zarb School of Business Distinguished Professor Joel Evans of Hofstra University did an extended radio interview with Suzanne Phillips, Psy.D. on self-branding from different perspectives and across our diverse roles. Self-branding — how we see ourselves and how we want to be perceived by others — is a key to long-term personal and career success.
In this post, we are including Part 2 of the interview, which is broken into three parts/posts.
How can you translate your self-brand into a resume?
- Join LinkedIn and browse through the profiles of others in the field you would like to have a career. Look at their descriptions of themselves.
- Always do multiple drafts of a new resume and show them to people you trust. Include key words that are included in each job description.
- You should always articulate your self-brand at the top of a resume. ( How – an example) Again, include buzz words from job descriptions.

- The resume should be modified to fit the job description. This is 2016, not 1976. There is no excuse for not modifying your resume to the position sought.
- A self-brand statement should reflect the stage of your career that you are in currently.
