Get ready for the annual Job Action Day, hosted by Quintessential Careers happening Monday, Nov. 5. Here’s what’s planned thus far:
Job Action Day 2012, November 5th, is all about empowering job-seekers to create, build, and enhance your personal career brand to help you move your career and/or job-search forward.
Job Action Day is a day for all job-seekers and workers to take stock of their situations and make plans and/or take action steps to improve their careers.
As job-hunting and career development strategies continue to evolve, one thing is certain — the power of branding to establish, build, and enhance a job-seeker’s reputation.
A job-seeker’s career brand is the unique set of experiences, accomplishments, skills, education, attitude, passion, and the like that provide the promise of value to future employers.
Career branding strategies should be used in all aspects of career development and job-hunting, including on resumes, LinkedIn profiles, personal websites, social media activities, interviewing, and salary negotiation.
Job Action Day 2012, the fifth-annual initiative spearheaded by Quintessential Careers, includes expert and empowering articles, tips, and blog posts that give job-seekers information, ideas, and concrete steps that you can take to tackle your career brand.
Links will be released soon on the articles, bloggers, and other features that will be published on Job Action Day 2012, including these articles:
