Your Unique Personal Brand: Differentiate Yourself & Land the Perfect Job

Core Allies LLC invites you to learn how to succeed in your career by creating a personal brand. By identifying your unique skills and talents, you can not only discover your ideal job, you can also land that job by creating a personal brand that allows you to stand out from everyone else.

Workshop Overview:
Unlike other programs which typically involve a speaker and an audience, this “workshop” is unique due to its high level of interactivity. Utilizing proprietary tools and thought exercises, Melissa will guide you and your fellow participants as you begin the process of:

  • Identifying your unique gifts and talents.
  • Discovering the ideal job that allows you to fully use your gifts and talents.
  • Creating a personal brand that will help you land that job by communicating your unique gift and talents.

Participants in this two-hour workshop benefit from the opportunity to be coached live by Melissa, as well as hear about specific case examples where individuals have used branding to take their careers to the next level.
