Love your recommended resources, Megan, especially HelpaReporter.com. You have a unique way of sharing, and it's very appealing. I like the way you write!


Megan, this is outstanding. These strategies aren't only good for career experts but also for those of us who work in the industry. I'm retweeting this post and will be crediting a few of these suggestions when I give a talk on Friday. If you hear the Liberty Bell ringing in your ears later this week, you'll know why.

Wow, Megan! We are so thinking along the same lines!

Standing up and sharing your expertise is a sure fire way to gain visibility for enhanced career success. In fact, I think that people would do well to think of themselves as “free agents” – even if looking for a traditional job opportunity.

Taking the time to uncover one’s brand, and clearly, consistently, and constantly communicating one’s thought leadership is key! These are great resources for doing just that!

Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter, Executive Resume Strategist

I echo Chandlee's sentiments that these strategies are exceptional not just for careerists but those of us "in the industry!"

I love the closing tip: "... do you know what "that thing" is that you can do well in a way that no one else can?" I agree that taking time to find "that thing" and THEN visibly sharing that "expert status" on- and offline is important.

Several years ago I underwent a rigorous introspection, along with my accountability partner/career coach, and unearthed my "Your Value Into Words" tagline. Arriving at that tagline was a process that involved many conversations as well as behind-the-scenes introspection.This first step was a launch-pad for future sharings!

In closing, I LOVE your post's message, as well, the resources, the easy to follow links, and the detailed explanations behind them. You've made it simple for careerists to implement your great suggestions!
