As an accomplished, award-winning public relations
professional, Brandie Gerrish knows a thing or two about making a positive impression.
In business, this is known as "corporate image;" for individuals, it's known as "personal branding." For teens and college students entering the competitive worlds of college and business, it's becoming more important and even earlier than you might think.
Personal branding is one of the characteristics associated with Gen-Y and is lead by champions such as Dan Schwabel, the world's expert on personal branding, Brazen Careerist, an employment matching and career advising company, and even the ".me" personal extension of a domain name.
Gerrish has led workshops at Bryant University, Curry College and Bentley University on topics related to personal branding, networking, and creating a positive image. Tonight on #CampusChat, she's going to share tips and resources to help teens get a leg up on creating a personal brand that helps them stand out whether meeting with an admissions counselor during a college visit or when interviewing for an internship or job.
#CampusChat focuses on topics related to all things college — from the campus visit to graduation. It is held on Twitter and begins at 9PM ET, 8 CT, 7 MT, 6 PT. All you need to participate is a Twitter id and remember to include "#campuschat" with every tweet.
Takeaway Tweets & Transcripts from recent chats include:
- Mark Babbit, founder of YouTern: "Internships & You"
- Kevin Ladd, VP of Scholarships.com, on "Free Money"
