Simply having a LinkedIn profile and polished resume is not enough to differentiate yourself during your transition and job search. Personal brand building and mastering social media communications is an investment that will pay dividends during this critical life event.
Brands cannot truly succeed in social business through marketing and social media team activity alone. A brand's employees play the key role in establishing, amplifying, and nourishing the social identity of the organization. And to make things more challenging, the line between personal versus professional identity is becoming blurred as individual employees focus on activating their personal brands.
The work environment has changed and retention and attraction of the best talent is paramount to the success and growth of any organization. Companies that truly understand that their employees represent the most valuable audience they serve have happier, trusting employees that are more informed, involved, represent positive brand stewardship and amplify the corporate message/story.
