Recommendation

Dan Schawbel’s book teaches college students and those who are new to the world of work how to build and promote their personal brands so they can approach the job market with confidence. While the book targets Gen Y, other age groups can benefit from its detailed advice on building a personal brand by using various online tools. A personal brand not only helps you get hired, it also leads to opportunities and advancement.
