Personally branding represents the need. If you do not attract attention and do not highlight your values and capabilities, someone else will do that, and the competition will win. Regardless of the position, the years, the work that you do, you represent yourself. Your name is your brand and your company. Whatever you do, you as a person are in the foreground. Roughly speaking, you are the product that you sell.
The ultimate goal of personal brand is to be honest. Personally branding does not mean that you falsely represent yourself (“sell” without coverage). The essence is to find your way and that your skills become important for the other people. Be unique and irreplaceable. Make the people around you to create a unique, strong and favorable association when they mention your name.
Personally branding will not solve all your problems. But it will help you to fit more easily into the business world, also help the world to be inclined to you and thus you will find your position.
