Personal branding for career success

Week 8: Taking the next steps


Welcome to Week 8, the final week of the course.

Last week you considered how to promote your brand in writing and in person, looking at elements of the job application process as well as opportunities to get your brand across that might be less obvious.

This week, you’ll finish the course by reflecting on everything you’ve learned and developing a plan to put your personal brand into action.
