Identify your top 5 strengths and incorporate that into your personal brand.

  • Talk about Yourself – After you have established and understood who you are, you can now start discussing about yourself during your career development sessions or when you undergo a job interview. This is the start of your personal branding journey.
  • Rebrand Yourself – When you plan to shift to a new filed/industry, you can use your strengths and where you have applied your strengths in the past to prove your qualification to the new field you are shifting to.
