Standing out in today’s job market isn’t easy. Not only is the competition intense, but being a “qualified” candidate is more difficult than ever before. It’s not just about the experience listed on your resume. It’s about your social presence, your digital expertise, your side projects, your cool logo. It’s about having and maintaining a personal brand.
