AUGUST 2 | Early Registration Ends for the Certified Personal Brand Strategist Program

Personal branding isn't the flavor of the month. It is a transformational process entrepreneurs, small business owners, executives, professionals, and job seekers use to find authenticity and articulate the branded value that makes them more influential, indispensable, and incredibly happy at work.

For your clients, personal branding is the future of career management and a proactive solution for their long-term career success.

Personal branding launches your career, boosting your confidence to know you are doing the best for your client, taking the right steps and not having to make it up as you go.

After the CPBS program, you'll sound and feel like an expert  exiting the spiral of constantly hunting new clients at a low price point with your new, long-term value proposition that converts your ideal clients.

In the Certified Personal Brand Strategist program, you will learn the Reach Personal Branding, a comprehensive, three-step process for uncovering, communicating, and nurturing your personal brand.

Early Registration Ends August 2

CTL Releases Annual Industry Whitepaper

The annual industry trends whitepaper is now available. This year's white paper explores key questions the career industry continues to pose in light of recent developments in technology, resume development, and social media: Does personal branding still matter? Are video resumes or a paper resumes more important? How does having a social media presence impact career advancement?

The insights originate annually from Career Jam: Where Experts Forecast The New & The Next. Career Jam participants include a diverse group of professionals. Their insights – based on daily interactions with job seekers and hiring authorities worldwide – reveal dynamic changes in the way we work today, and the way we'll work tomorrow. Mark November 30 for the 2018 Career Jam event to join in setting the trends for the future!
