How To Figure it Out

Figuring out what you want to be known for can be difficult for some people. A few of the questions you can ask yourself when thinking about this are:

  • What do you really enjoy doing?
  • What part of your job do you enjoy even on days when you feel like crap?

My Journey

Contrary to what most people have been taught, your personal brand can (and if you ask me should) evolve. If I look back at my career, these have been my branding messages over the years:

  • Tech support trainer & supervisor eager to build the best technical support team around.
  • Software engineer committed to helping companies get the most out of their financial data.
  • 🎥 Software Project Manager with a passion for web-based software that gets things done!
  • Engineering Manager relentlessly and unapologetically building diverse Software Engineering Teams.
  • 🎥 Talent Acquisition Consultant specialized in employee retention and building diverse teams.
  • Personal Branding Coach & Job Search Strategist helping underrepresented individuals land tech jobs they love.

Your personal brand is what will open doors for you and help you Level Up.
