Don’t get caught thinking that success in the job search is all luck like our friend in the comic strip here. For technical candidates, how they brand themselves can play a crucial role in landing those dream jobs and promotions. So, as part of this week’s twitter chat, we’ll be reviewing a few different scenarios by outlining key traits of different make-believe candidates to determine a branding theme and to craft a brand message tagline that will serve as the centerpiece of all the candidate’s job search documentation.

  • Strengths: Dedicated, hardworking, team player, needs analysis, requirements gathering, problem resolution, quality

Candidate #2

  • Job Goal: Manufacturing Engineering Manager
  • Strengths: Team leadership, process management, communications, strategy development, cost savings, production and quality increases, solution design

Candidate #3
