Your personal brand helps you stand out to recruiters by creating a unified image. As well as a succinct summary of who you are and what you do. The information on your resume is confined by an 8 ½ x 11 piece of paper. Yet, your personal brand extends to showcase all aspects of your life. And it presents a united image of yourself to recruiters, opening the door for more professional opportunities.
Some of the most successful people in the world started where you are today. To get to where they are now, many successful entrepreneurs and businesspeople had to build their brands and work their way to the top.
