FINDING USEFUL job seeking resources and learning how to create your personal brand were just a few things participants learned at the “Helping Experience Work @ 50+” Career Fair. This career fair, hosted by AARP in collaboration with EmploymentGuide.com, was held on April 13, at Burton Manor in Livonia.
AARP Career Fair teaches importance of creating a personal brand
What do you think of when you hear the
word “brand?” When we see a familiar logo, it makes us think of specific things – good, bad or indifferent. A successful brand is one we identify with and feel good about. What does this have to do with finding a job when you are 50 years of age or older? Like a good product brand, a personal
brand is a tool that can help you stand out from the crowd. A personal brand clearly says “This is who I am and what I do.” It displays unique talents and experiences. If you are looking for a job right now,
you know how tough the current job market is and you are also aware that things have changed a lot in the past few decades. Today, job postings, applications and re-
sumes are posted on the Internet. However, in order to be effective in your job search, you cannot just post your resume online and wait for responses. Conveying your personal brand in your resume can help you sell your talents and skills. When creating your personal brand, the
following are some things you should be sure to include: • Your skills and qualifications
– What are you good? What are your key talents? • Your achievements – How have you made an impact? • Your passions – What do you love
doing? How does your passion infuse your work? • Your value – Do you offer what the employer is looking for?
Once you have created your personal
brand, it can be incorporated into all facets of your job search – networking, resumes, cover letters and interviews. Networking is more important than ever.
A personal brand can help you feel more self-assured as you network. When network- ing, be sure to introduce yourself using ele- ments of your brand. Use social networking websites such as Facebook and LinkedIn as part of your networking strategy. The con- nections you make online many times can open up job leads. It is also helpful to get business cards printed and leave them with your contacts. Liven up your resume and cover letter
by pointing to your unique achievements, skills and work values. On your resume, focus on measurable achievements such as “increased sales by 40 percent” or “expand- ed program from one county to four.” A major component of your brand is
how you present yourself during an inter- view. Show a positive attitude, be aware of your body language, maintain eye contact and pay attention to appearance. “Personal branding for those ages 50 and
over is extremely important in the job search process”, says Thomas E. Kimble, an execu- tive council volunteer for AARP Michigan. “It is a challenging experience looking for work when you are over 50, so you need to be able to identify yourself in such a way that will make you stand out. Creating a per- sonal brand does just that.”
U-M announces new statewide
The University of Michigan is home to
the new statewide Michigan College Advis- ing Corps, a unique approach to increasing the number of low-income, first-generation and underrepresented students entering and completing higher education in Michigan. Following in the tradition of the Ameri-
Corps and Teach for America programs, MCAC will recruit and train a select group of recent U-M graduates to work full-time for up to two years as college advisers in underserved high schools throughout Michigan. MCAC advisers, who will begin their placements at local high schools in fall 2010, will help students navigate every as- pect of the college-going process. They will collaborate with principals, counselors, and teachers to foster a college-going culture in their school and community, and will help identify the best fit and match between the students and their college choices. MCAC at U-M is one of 14 constituent
programs around the country that constitute the National College Advising Corps. The NCAC consortium of colleges and universi- ties aim to increase the number of low-in- come, first-generation college students in the United States. NCAC affiliates include the University of California at Berkeley, Tufts University, Brown University, Pennsylvania State University, University of Missouri- Columbia, University of Illinois, University of Virginia, University of Alabama, Univer- sity of Utah, University of Georgia, Franklin and Marshall College, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which serves as national headquarters. “The University of Michigan is com-
mitted to seeing more young people in our state pursue a college education. The Michi- gan College Advising Corps is a natural fit with our longstanding efforts to strengthen the K-12 pipeline to higher education and prepare graduates for our state’s growing knowledge-based economy,” said President Mary Sue Coleman. In the pilot year (2010–2011), eight
full-time MCAC college advisers will be placed at high schools in up to eight Michi- gan cities including Battle Creek, Benton Harbor, Grand Rapids, Jackson, Muskegon, and Pontiac. The program will expand to 12 community schools in the 2011-2012, and 16 in 2012-2013 and beyond. MCAC is made possible by support
from NCAC, which benefits from the sup- port of contributors such as The Kresge Foundation, the Jack Kent Cook Founda- tion, Lumina Foundation for Education, and Bank of America. “MCAC will be a solid complement
to the numerous educational outreach pro- grams that are based at U-M,” said Nick Collins, executive director of the U-M Cen- ter for Educational Outreach, which will be MCAC’s administrative base. “U-M’s commitment to MCAC, and to educational
