Regarding personal branding success, a lot has been said about authenticity — and for good reason. Getting wrapped up in a façade can be very tiring, and can lead to a complete collapse when it becomes impossible to sustain it.
I had the honor of being interviewed by Media Shower about The Job Quest and its success. One statement I made struck me as I read the post:
“Helping people is an integral part of my personality.”
And it really is. At the core of who I am is someone who wants to make the lives of others better. It’s no wonder that some of the most gratifying experiences of my life — including being a career consultant — have involved helping folks out.
What about you? How authentic are you being in your career? Where has it led you?
