Hi, it’s Linda Raynier of LindaRaynier.com
Career Strategist. I help experienced corporate professionals to develop their personal brand
get clear on the work they’re meant to do and grow that into a meaningful career.
So, I’ve been getting a lot of questions and comments lately on
my interview, my resume videos.
And, one of the most common questions I’ve been getting, has been
“How do I approach my job search when I have no experience?”
So, in this video, I want to share with you a key exercise that
无论有没有经验 在你发简历 开始面试之前
everyone needs to do, whether or not they have experience
before you send out your resume and go on interviews.
And I can tell you that this has nothing to do with the resume or interview itself,
it actually has more to do with you as an individual so you definitely want to pay attention.
So here’s the problem that a lot of you may be facing or that you’re seeing.
The real problem, however, is that
you didn’t know how to sell yourself to the employers and get them to hire you anyways,
despite your lack of experience.
In other words, you weren’t able to express your personal brand.
So considering that you’re probably someone without experience,
this is a likely scenario where you’re just at the very early stages of establishing your career.
Or, you are someone who already had a previous career
but you want to switch into another market or industry.
You also don’t have experience in that particular industry.
The thing you have to realize is that if you want to stand out amongst employers,
you want to stand out amongst the crowd.
You need to have something called a personal brand.
So what is a personal brand?
And it has nothing to do with having the exact experience for that position or in that industry.
Your personal brand is much more than the resume or the things that you say in an interview.
Even though those are key tools that we would use to help you express your personal brand.
Think of it this way.
As an employer, what do you think
they’d want from someone who was a perfect candidate for the position?
They would want someone who can demonstrate who they are.
So for example, by demonstrating a positive demeanour,
by showcasing confidence,
someone who’s eager, someone who’s helpful.
They also want someone who can demonstrate what they’re capable of.
By showcasing what you’ve learned in the past
that you can apply to this new opportunity.
And then they also want someone who can demonstrate what makes them valuable.
So for example if you’ve been able to do something or accomplish something in the past,
how can you apply that same experience and project it for this new opportunity?
Project it for the future?
What do you plan to accomplish in this new role?
All those individual pieces clearly explain what your personal brand is to them.
So what I’m trying to say is, if you want to have a strong personal brand,
you need to be able to connect the dots.
You need to be able to use the experiences that you’ve gained
and the knowledge that you’ve gained up until this point
whether or not they relate to this current position
from an industry perspective or even from a position/job title
or duties perspective. It doesn’t matter.
It’s more about, how do those experiences tie into your personal brand
and how can you express that
and relate that to this position in front of you?
So unfortunately, if you don’t know how to connect the dots
then you’re likely not going to make it past the first or second round of interviews.
Because what’s going to happen is,
you’re going to keep telling yourself,
“I have no experience for this job. I have no experience for this job.”
And as you answer your interview questions, they’re going to notice that
the answers are lacking in some way, shape or form.
Because you’re not selling yourself.
The way to sell yourself, the key to selling yourself is through your personal brand.
Remember, use the stories and experiences that you’ve gained from the past
who you are,
what you’re capable of,
and what makes you valuable.
If you can showcase those,
then that’s really going to help you stand apart from the competition.
Personal branding is something that I love to talk about because
this is the bread and butter of what I do.
I help my clients to develop their personal brand and
go from zero job offers to multiple job offers.
I’ve had many client success stories and I’m sure I can help you as well.
