Below is a breakdown of what we will be covering:
Part 1: Defining your Professional Identity.
Before you can ‘brand’ yourself (CV, LinkedIn, Elevator Pitch), you need to understand what it is you are actually branding. By defining your Professional Identity, you are developing your core branding message which will then be used in your Job Seeking Toolkit – CV, LinkedIn and Elevator Pitch.
Understanding your Professional Identity essentially means becoming an authority on yourself, leading to greater professional self-awareness and enabling you to effectively ‘sell’ yourself in a clear and confident manner.
In this section, we are going to be defining the 5 Pillars of your Professional Identity:
1. Your Professional Label (who and what you are)
2. What you do (the challenges you help organisations overcome)
3. Your key strengths and skills (your main areas of expertise)
4. Your specialisation (where you have the most depth of expertise and experience)
5. Your value (the outcomes you enable an organisation to achieve)

Part 4: Designing your Elevator Pitch
