Building Your Professional Brand: An NIU Student and Alumni Collaborative Workshop

Overview:

Branding is not limited to products and organizations. Individuals develop a professional brand that they utilize as they make their way through their career. Your professional brand is...

  • What you want to be known for,
  • The values that are important to you, 
  • The knowledge, skills, and work traits you’ve developed through your education, employment, and other key experiences, and
  • The goals you are building towards.

In this interactive workshop, NIU students will collaborate with alumni volunteers to learn the ins and outs of branding - how to identify the elements of their brand, how to put it into a professional introduction, and how to use it for networking and career success.

By the end of the workshop students will be able to:

  • Define branding and name the critical components.
  • Translate important life experiences to elements of their own professional brand.
  • Identify ways to promote their brand on social media and other settings.
