The Hype and Myths vs. Reality:
• Branding isn't a passing fad. In fact, the process of
identifying what differentiates you from your com-
petition has been part of job search, career marketing,
and resume development for decades. It was given
a name in the mid-nineties by Tom Peters. It may
go by a different name in the future, but the concept
and approach will probably be the same.
• If you're not actually an expert in your field, don't
lie and mislead people in your brand messaging.
When push comes to shove, you won't be able to
live up to the expectation . . . and then you will have
tarnished your reputation by boasting inflated claims.
• You may call branding bragging about yourself, but
it's really all about being truthful about the best you
have to offer. If you've achieved great things, you'd
be wise to let your target employers know about it,
• If all you've done is create a spiffy tagline, and you
think you've defined your brand, you haven't done
the work. Back up, and spend time identifying what
• Money may come with branding, but if you're setting
out to become wealthy, it takes a whole lot more
than knowing and expressing your brand. Your brand
may help you land a high paying job (I hope!), but
once on the job, everything will fizzle if you don't
have the goods to back up your claims.
• Unless your goal is to become famous and you have
Personal branding has somewhat mainstreamed
and is becoming more accepted in job search. But
I still see too many job seekers confused about what
branding actually is.
It's no wonder they're confused, with so much
debate and misinformation floating around social
media and traditional media. Do you feel bombarded
by the opposing voices and befuddled about brand-
ing and whether it has any value in job search?
The Hype and Myths
Some of the misguided things you've probably heard
about what personal branding is:
• A passing fad not worthy of consideration -- the next
new thing is bound to come along and replace it.
• The way to position yourself as an expert in your
• An opportunity to brag about yourself.
• Just a catchy tagline for your resume and email sig-
• Your ticket to making big money.
• The way to become famous.
• A brand statement that lists your relevant functional
areas of expertise, just like a job description.
The Reality --
What personal branding really is:
Simply put, branding in job search is a way to uncover,
define, and communicate your unique ROI (Return on
Investment) value to your target employers, based on
Authentic personal branding takes work. The devel-
opment process requires pinpointing the personal attrib-
utes, values, drivers, strengths, and passions that differ-
entiate your unique promise of value from your peers,
whatever "it" is that makes people famous, your brand alone probably won't make
you a superstar.
• A brand statement needs to be much more than a string of relevant keyword
phrases highlighting your functional areas of expertise. To make it hit home with
recruiters and hiring authorities assessing you, it needs to integrate your hard skill
sets with your softer ones -- indicating who you are and how you use your skill
sets to make things happen. Read more in my article, Creating Your Authentic
Personal Brand Statement. (http://www.job-hunt.org/personal-branding/creat-
Why personal branding matters so much in job search:
• The branding process helps you understand your ROI value to your target companies
and what differentiates you from your competition in the job market,
• And helps you clearly communicate that ROI value and good fit qualities when
you network and interview,
• And helps you stand out from your competition in your career marketing materials
(resume, biography, online profiles, blogging, etc.).
• Your brand incorporates your "softer" side and generates chemistry for who you
are, what you're like to work with, how you make things happen, and what you
have to offer that no one else does.
Try to ignore the hype and myths. Learn what authentic branding actually is. Invest
time and effort in identifying the things that differentiate you from your competitors
in the job market and the things that make you the best hiring choice for your target
