With target employers in mind, your personal brand
"positioning" statement should link your functional
areas of expertise (hard skills) with key personal attrib-
utes, values, and passions (softer skills).
The message should showcase your promise of value and
position you as a good fit to meet those employers' current
In my experience, job seekers may have no problem with
the first part -- zeroing in on their hard skills and functional
areas of expertise.
They can readily identify this part of the value they offer
their target employers.
But that is often the ONLY part of their brand they focus
on in their brand statement.
What happened to the "personal"
part of their personal brand?
Without the personal, their brand statement is not much
more than an anemic job description, stringing together func-
tional areas of expertise.
Without the personal, their brand statement probably reads
about the same as their job seeking competitors', and doesn't
help people see what makes them stand out above the rest.
Personal branding is not about sameness. It's all about dif-
That kind of so-called brand statement does little to generate
chemistry for them as a candidate. After all, if they're running
an effective job search campaign, most of their efforts will
be spent networking. This means that their career documents
(resume, biography, etc.), LinkedIn profile, and whatever con-
tains their brand statement, have to be reader-friendly.
In this case, human eyeballs will be assessing them through
their documents and profiles, so they need to be an interesting,
Of course, recruiters and hiring decision makers want to
see relevant keywords, so those need to be well represented
in career documents and online profiles. But these people
also want to know more about candidates than what they
do. They want to know who they are and how they make
things happen. A brand positioning statement gives them
the opportunity to provide that information.
Find your personal brand
Sometimes the problem job seekers have, when creating
a brand statement, is not giving themselves permission to
include their personality and be authentically "them."
• What are you known as the go-to person for?
• What drives you? What things are you most passionate
about at work?
• What words do people use when they introduce you?
• How do you describe your leadership style? How do you
get the best out of your teams?
• What differentiates you from others who do the same
work -- your competition in the job market? What com-
bination of things do you offer that no one else does?
Here's an example of an executive brand positioning state-
ment that links hard skills with softer skills to generate chem-

Take the time to do the branding work and

in your resume, LinkedIn profile, and other career

sameness ever will.
