Episode Description

We hear it all the time: we need to know how to “sell ourselves.” But there is a much easier way to land the jobs and opportunities you want – attract them! How do you do that? Build visibility, credibility, and likeability with the people you need to know you. In this episode of The Career Confidante, host Marie Zimenoff welcomes personal branding consultant Alice Ngatia. Together they discuss how you can take action to move from being a resident expert – only known within your small circle or current company – to be an industry expert or known in the new audiences that will help you reach your goals. Alice will cover mistakes people make when developing their personal brand to speed up your job search or business growth. If you are wondering where to start to build your brand and attract what you want, listen in!

The Career Confidante

Monday at 3 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

In the past decade, theories about how we would all need to be “free agents,” in charge of our own career trajectory, have become reality. While there is a good deal of talk about this new reality, little tangible direction exists about how to thrive, not just survive, in this new workforce.

Join career and leadership development expert Marie Zimenoff as she invites you to learn what you need to know today for tomorrow’s career success. She will share the inside scoop on hiring trends, explain how to earn a promotion, and explore what hiring managers are saying across a variety of industries.

Mondays at 3 PM Pacific on VoiceAmerica Business, Marie will provide a featured topic, interview national leaders and review the latest career management tools. You will benefit from a weekly Get Career Smart(tm) tip and featured job of the week, in addition to practical strategies in branding, career transition, advancement, job search, resumes, interviewing, and social media.
