The three words I want to have represent my brand are intelligent, hardworking, and leader. While there are many other traits I aspire to have and portray through my brand, I believe these three sum up who I am, professionally, very well. On a first impression with a potential employer, I want to come across as competent. I think we all want to be taken seriously by others, and a big part of this is demonstrated through active listening and communication. Communication is one of my strongest skills, which I think benefits my brand well. Additionally, I have taken on many leadership roles during my time at OSU, which has helped me communicate my leadership potential to others. Through my resume and an introduction, I am also able to communicate my work ethic to employers by speaking to the various classes, activities and work experiences I have taken part in.
I would market myself in a creative way by taking a photograph of my profile and then filling the inside with professional work experiences, projects, and accomplishments. I think that this idea would be both artistic and informative to my skills and abilities. I would include resume-type items on this graphic so that each item was direct, easy to read, and action-oriented. Where a resume lacks personality, this marketing ad would be creative and unique to who I am. By outlining my face, it would also show an image of me to potential employers. I have always loved photography and photo editing, so this project in itself would cater to a hobby of mine and something that differentiates me.
