What is professional branding?
Professional branding is the way you market and sell yourself in different business settings whether to different companies or networks.
Just like how a company would differentiate itself from its competitors by communicating and highlighting its unique value proposition, you should do the same as a jobseeker.
If you take a proactive approach to your professional brand, it can benefit your career in the long run. With a well-defined brand, companies and employers are able to understand your strengths and how to tap on them.
