  Mining For Your Executive Brand & Promoting ROI
by Rosa Elizabeth Vargas - Nov, 2011
What has cemented the doom of many job seekers, including executive-level leaders, is their inability (or self-destructive refusal) to wrap their minds around the idea of marketing themselves with a unique identity as if they were a product. As a “product,” you must clearly articulate your executive brand, unique value proposition, and market an ROI. Yet, instead, most executives mount a precarious job search campaign wi...
  Healthy Job Search: Keep Your Sanity

Unemployed can induce anxiety and depression! I know. Especially with all the talk on the news about the high unemployment rate. Yet, taking some time off from job searching (and away from the nightly news) will help you sustain your sanity so you come back to your job-hunt campaign renewed and with a fresh perspective. A clear mindset and a positive attitude is as essential to your job search as your career marketing tools....
  Jobseeker, Are You Crazy?
by Rosa Elizabeth Vargas - Apr, 2011
I have said it many times before and I will say it, here, again…you have to be willing to stand apart from the job search mob by daring to break the norm and differentiate yourself.

Will your friends advise you against a personal branding statement on your resume because that is just not done? Perhaps. If you call a com...

  Is Your Personal Brand Wrong?
by Rosa Elizabeth Vargas - Dec, 2010
A careerist said to me, “I need your help. I need to REBRAND my resume.” Okay. So, I was expecting, “I need a resume like yesterday.” Perhaps, “What is resume branding?” But, an outright “rebrand” —well! If I wasn’t already sitting… Why a Rebrand? You see, this careerist had developed a strong brand; earned a reputation as a ‘department savior.’ The problem? Most of the job offers were coming from companies in need of...

Excuse me. Come again? Are you kidding? What is the first thing you do when you want more information about ANY topic? About a celebrity? About a dream vacation? The weather? You Google it. That's right. I know you do. You Google it. What makes you think you are un-googleble? Simply put, Facebook can affect your online brand, your digital reputation, your corporate identity, and ultimately your employability. The most impo...

The fo...
