Having strong, updated personal-branding materials: resume, LinkedIn and Handshake profiles, and a professional introduction.

Why it Matters

A personal brand is the impression you give - in person, online, or on paper. A positive impression is often the difference-maker in getting hired and building a professional network.

First Action
