Free Webinar: Re-Think! The Brand Called You 5/5

ILostMyJob.com presents a FREE webinar

Re-Think! The Brand Called You: Your Personal Branding Session

with coach Donna Fedor

It’s crucial when you interview for a job to be able to distinguish yourself from every other candidate. Your part on the interview is to articulate why they should hire you. Who are they hiring? What is your character, track record, and reputation? What can they count on? Through a series of questions, they hope to get to know you.

This is an area where many people struggle. We first must learn how to deal with all the negative thoughts that are present in our mental chatter, clouding our ability to see our full value.

When you’re unclear and have difficulty talking about yourself, it’s actually uncomfortable, and you’re less likely to share yourself with others. You have a brand whether you’re aware of it or not. The brand called you is one of the most important parts of the job search process.

In this free webinar you’ll learn:

-To polish the diamond (you)

-How to change the way you think about you

-How to boost your self-confidence

-Your me file including accomplishments,
strengths, value statement, and elevator pitch

-What relationships are absolutely necessary to drive you forward toward the fulfillment of your ultimate life
