When entering the job market, worrying about how you compare to other candidates is normal. However, with the right devotion, you may still attract employers and succeed even in a field that has nothing to do with your field of study. The first step is just knowing the desirable qualities the hiring team is looking for.
The following are tips you may use to distinguish yourself as a more desirable job candidate.
Establish Your Brand
Employers often base their first impressions of you on your brand. Therefore, your brand should consistently reflect your personality and skills on all social media platforms, in your resume, cover letter, and portfolio.
A personal brand often contains the components listed below.
A Professional Photograph
This is the primary visual component that best represents who you are. Therefore, when choosing professional headshots to represent you, make them your social media profile photos and use them in any business-related correspondence, including email signatures. Also, be consistent so that employers will quickly identify and remember you.
A Symbol or Color Scheme
You may create a unique logo, highlight a color scheme, or design your job application to set yourself apart from other applicants. Also, consider being consistent if you choose this course of action and use the same colors and logo on your business cards, resumes, and cover letters. By doing so, you will become more identifiable to hiring managers and companies if your designs are consistent.
A Statement of Personal Branding
Your branding statement quickly outlines your abilities, objectives, and experience, just as your resume objective or summary does. Therefore, you may include this in your cover letter, resume, and professional social media sites. Additionally, you may include it in your elevator pitch.
