“Personal branding” is one of those buzzwords few people understand. No, it doesn’t mean you have to come up with a name like “SportsBizMiss” and create a catchy logo. It’s one of those do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do sort of things.
I’ve recently expanded my Career Coaching services to include young professionals, because I’ve begun to receive more inquiries from those out working in their first or second jobs than from students. It’s the same thing that happened with my annual resume/cover letter/mock interview workshop at the National Association for Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) convention, which was originally planned for students and evolved into an invaluable resource for young professionals in college athletics.
Professionals have different needs than students. Maybe you’ve landed that entry-level job in the field of your choice, but you have no idea what to do next. Or perhaps you’re a few years in, but you’re concerned you’re not making sufficient progress toward your end goal. Unfortunately, much of the advice out there is focused on getting a job, not on how to grow professionally between job searches.
For those of you who aren’t ready for one-on-one coaching with me, I’m presenting a new series of live 1-1.5 hour webinars designed specifically for professionals working in sports. Students, feel free to register, as much of this can apply to you as well or get you ready for that first job you might be starting this year.
REGISTRATION IS LIMITED TO 25 PEOPLE*
The first webinar will focus on personal branding. Here’s a look at the outline:
