But first, what is Personal Branding? If you Google your name, what comes up? If the answer is “nothing”, you probably haven’t spent much time developing your personal brand. All of us are looking to make a good impression when it comes to advancing our careers and one of the fundamental attributes you should have at your disposal is knowing how you promote yourself.

Your personal brand is your career armor — it’s how you get recognized and remembered. Crafting your personal brand requires extensive self-reflection and introspection. It is the telling of your story, and how it reflects your conduct, behavior, spoken and unspoken words, and attitudes.
