Building Your Own Personal Brand To Stand Out

Do you stand out from the rest of the crowd? Are you preparing your personal brand to show that you can be a valued asset for potential employers? While it's great to help make a company or organization's brand red-hot, it's also important to make sure you are just as recognizable. 

Co-hosts Merritt Hamilton Allen and Gary Potterfield talk about developing personal brands, the steps and tactics they took for their own brands when building their own careers, and what employers are going to look for when analyzing the brand of a potential employee. Merritt highlights a number of tactics to promote personal brands centered on a robust and engaging social media presence, while Gary talks about demonstrating professional capabilities and achievements ... all couched in his usual dry wit and obscure pop culture references.

The Brand Ambassadors - Where The Jobs Are

This week's show focuses on the Millennial job seeker who's interested in developing a promising career in public relations, journalism or communication. Hosts Merritt and Gary will talk with Kim Marks Malone, public relations and journalism professor at the University of Memphis and the adviser for the university's student-run strategic communication firm, Meeman 901 Strategies.

All university students home for winter break, parents of same, and job seekers need to tune in to this show to learn who is hiring whom and for what.
